REQUEST FOR SPEAKING RIGHTS AT THE AUCKLAND COUNCIL GOVERNING BODY MEETING – THURSDAY 25 OCTOBER 2012

– 10AM RECEPTION LOUNGE, AUCKLAND TOWN HALL.

Dear Mike

With Corruption issues on the agenda for    the meeting above, I wish to  seek  speaking rights  as a whistle-blower on council corruption.

I have documents which I wish to  present to show how council is ineffective in dealing with whistle-blowers   and consequently  corruption   continues to flourish  and  rate payers dollars are misappropriated.

I  have new and conclusive proof with regards to the Animal Welfare institute of New Zealand ( AWINZ) operating form  the council  premises  this evidence  is in the form of an   audit report done by MAF  as attached  and referenced as follows              final draft audit 2008

  1. Page 2  “it was at times  difficult during the audit  to distinguish where the structure  of AWINZ finished  and where WCC began  hence it was  at times difficult  to separate the AWINZ organisation  from that of WCC. For example AWINZ inspectors are not employed by AWINZ but are  all employees of WCC”
  2. page 9   “all personnel  ( including the AWINZ  inspectors ) based at the WCC animal accommodation  facility (48 the concourse ) are employees of WCC It must be noted that AWINZ does not have any employees as such , apart from when they contract to the film industry  to monitor AW issues, this did  lead to some confusion regarding he demarcation between the two organisations .”
  3.  page 13  AWINZ inspectors use WCC database.
  4.  Page 14 the inspectors vehicle was inspected..
  5. page 18  Location of audit WCC animal accommodation   the concourse

I  know that AWINZ  operated from the premises as I was  first approached by dog control officers who were concerned that they had to volunteer their council paid time to this organisation.  What made the matter worse was that the organisation  existed only as a pseudonym for the council manager who ran it.

 Council lawyers and council management have continually turned a blind eye to this matter.  I have evidence of  other instances of possible corruption  which without  proper attention will seek to  dilute the financial resources of council .

Regards

Grace Haden
