Two ACC rorters arrested

This blog has reported before about the interesting goings on at ACC and now it has been reported on Stuff that two of the tight group of mates have been arrested.

The Serious Fraud Office has laid eight charges against Malcolm David Mason and another individual (whose name is suppressed), relating to a series of allegedly corrupt property transaction involving the Accident Compensation Corporation.

SFO chief executive, Adam Feeley, said that the charges, under the Crimes Act and Secret Commissions Act, were the end result of an exhaustive inquiry into numerous property development and leasing arrangements involving the ACC over a two and a half year period.

“This has been the one of the most serious investigations into allegations of bribery and corruption cases in New Zealand in many years. It is a timely reminder that despite a global reputation for being the least corrupt country in the world, there are constant and very real threats to that reputation.”

So Malcolm mason and one of his pals are under arrest. it can only be one of the six I have previously reported on. Seems one is a coward afraid of his own name. It will only be a matter of time before Malcolm Mason starts squealing on the rest of the sorry bunch. It’s just a shame one of the group is a coward and is now casting aspersion on his mates and other businesses.
