Chief Ombudsman releases opinion on Auckland Council complaint
Office of the Ombudsman | July 25, 2018
Chief Ombudsman Peter Boshier has asked Auckland Council to apologise to Radio New Zealand over the way the Council dealt with a request for official information.
“I believe an apology is necessary because I have found the Council’s handling of the request was unreasonable and contrary to law in some respects.”
RNZ complained about a five-month delay in obtaining a Council report under the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act (LGOIMA) on the future of the imported vehicle trade at the Ports of Auckland.Back to top ↑ Back to top ↑
