Greens say ACC investigations suit Govt's agenda

6:09 am on 5 April 2012

The Green Party says its suits the Government's purposes, politically, to have several ongoing investigations in the Accident Compensation Corporation.

The Auditor-General, the Privacy Commissioner, police and the ACC board are carrying out investigations, following the release of thousands of confidential files to Bronwyn Pullar, an Auckland claimant, and other communications.

Greens co-leader Russel Norman says the Government should hold a single inquiry into the corporation to clear the air.

Dr Norman says a single inquiry would sort out governance issues at ACC, as well as look at how it handles its case management.
