SFO Throws Out Meat Workers Union Complaint

16 April 2012

NEW ZEALAND - The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) has announced it will not be investigating a complaint made regarding the financial affairs of the New Zealand Meat Workers and Related Trades Union Inc.

SFO Chief Executive, Adam Feeley, said that an immediate evaluation of the information provided to SFO investigators failed to disclose any evidence of fraud.

"We encourage any member of the public to contact us where they have any reasonable grounds to believe that a serious financial crime may be taking place. However, it is equally important that the resources of law enforcement agencies are not unnecessarily drawn into matters where other, more appropriate, courses of action are available."

Mr Feeley added that any issues regarding regulatory compliance were matters for the Registrar of Incorporated Societies to consider.

The SFO has communicated this result to the complainant and to the Union.
