Cooks CIIC lays out reasons for Aitutaki power changes

From , 5:03 am on 6 April 2017

The head of the Cook Islands Investment Corporation is assuring the people of Aitutaki any funds held by the island's power authority will be invested to upgrade its power supply.

Late last month the board of the Aitutaki Power Authority was removed and former chair Allan Mills claims this was to give the CIIC access to its financial reserves.

The Corporation's Mike Henry rejects that.

He told Don Wiseman the authority needs a major re-organisation so it can do all the things it needs to do for its clients.
