Revelations on NZ role

Friday, October 13, 2017

WELLINGTON - It's been revealed that New Zealand ordered Tokelau to suspend two public servants accused of making a controversial helicopter buy. The purchase of two helicopters in November prompted New Zealand to step in over what it called a "significant failure of governance" by Tokelau.

The territory's commissioner, Casimilo Perez, suspended finance director Heto Puka and public service general manager Jovilisi Suveinakama from their positions in April for their role in the buy.

But it was Jonathan Kings, a Ministry of Foreign Affairs deputy secretary at the time, who asked Tokelau to suspend Mr Puka and Mr Suveinakama.
