Investigation begins into Auckland stadium complaints

Press Release – Office of the Ombudsman

Chief Ombudsman’s investigation begins into Auckland Councillors’ stadium complaints
The Chief Ombudsman Peter Boshier is to conduct a formal investigation into two complaints from Auckland Councillors about the release of the central city stadium reports.

The complaints relate to the Auckland Council’s decision to impose conditions on the release of the National Stadium and Precinct Pre-feasibility Study reports to Councillors.

Mr Boshier says the first stage of his investigation has now started.
“I have written to the Chief Executive of Auckland Council and notified the complainants.”

“I am unable to comment any further as I am required by law to treat all evidence as confidential and all enquiries secret.”

“However, I do wish to complete my investigation as soon as possible given the high public interest in this case.”
