Mayor Len Brown has taken legal advice after Whaleoil understands he is unhappy about the discovery that hotel stays that were not related to the Ms Bevan Chuang sex scandal have also been included in the EY report. He is seeking legal advice.
A Whaleoil Investigation shows that people within the council have questioned Brown’s motives. With a chauffeur driven mayoral car at his disposal 24/7, and a 20 minute trip home, going to a city hotel for the night appears to require a better explanation than “late night, early start”.
Sources close to the story have said that they believe Len Brown wasn’t alone on such occasions.
SkyCity Grand staff were asked about the detail of Len Brown’s stays but they have declined to comment as per their policy on not discussing their guests for privacy reasons.
It is understood Brown’s legal team are attempting to have the additional SkyCity Grand visits classified as private stays, and therefore outside the scope of the EY inquiry.
