By Wepiha Te Kanawa

The Te Rōpū Taurima o Manukau Trust saga continues and in the course of one week it has gone from bad to worse.

Tony Tietie says, “The complaint has been lodged to the Serious Fraud Office and is also in the hands of the Auditor General and they will be conducting their investigations in due course.”

Te Rōpū Taurima's Hamilton office was temporarily closed on Tuesday after being inundated with media requests and we have been told all calls and emails of current staff members were being monitored to ensure no more information was leaked to the media.

Te Rōpū Taurima o Manukau Trust CEO Malcolm Robson released a statement today confirming that trust management met with Ministry of Health officials today. 

In the statement they also said the trust was willing to be part of a legitimate investigative process, and open to any public agency.

The trust has threatened Tony Tietie with legal action if he continues to talk to others regarding the Trust.
