Taito Phillip Field, Labour’s convicted corrupt former MP has finally paid for his tiling:
Disgraced former MP Taito Phillip Field has been ordered to pay back just under $28,000 that he made from his crimes.
In 2009, Field was jailed after being found guilty of bribery and corruption and attempting to pervert the course of justice.
He had accepted labour from Thai people whom he helped with immigration matters and then tried to cover it up.
The Solicitor-General took him to court asking for the $58,000 he received from those crimes.
During the hearing in June this year, Field disputed those costs and described them as inflated.
In a High Court ruling released on Monday, Justice Hansen ordered Field to pay $27,480.
