The probe into allegations against Green Party MP Darleen Tana, who was suspended over claims of exploiting migrants through her husband’s e-bike business, has incurred expenses of $43,000 to date.

Tana, a list MP, was temporarily removed from her duties on March 14 following the emergence of these accusations. The funding for this investigation is drawn from the budget of the Green Party leaders’ office, a sum provided by the Parliamentary Service and ultimately financed by taxpayers.

A spokesperson told media that, “The Green Party is committed to ensuring natural justice, which is why we are conducting a thorough, independent inquiry into the serious accusations involving Darleen Tana. The cost of this investigation currently stands at $43,000.”

While the investigation continues, Tana has remained absent from Parliament for half of the session’s days this year, yet she still receives her full salary.

Chloe Swarbrick, co-leader of the Greens was “hopeful for a swift resolution.”

Led by barrister Rachel Burt, the investigation has been underway for nine weeks without a final report. The Green Party’s leadership has not imposed a deadline for its completion.

  1. Disgraceful conduct.
    No accountability.
    No integrity.
    No honour.
    No selfawareness to the role as public servant.

    And that makes all these agents parasites of the hard working producing people of Godzone.
    AWAY with them!

  2. Imagine a Berber woman arriving in NZ with their chin art (a type of Moko)- imagine the uproar of ‘Cultural Appropriation’ without any of the local tribes not even knowing who or what a Berber is…and the fact that Berber women had these cultural designs for centuries!
    Chloe was interviewed by Jack Lame yesterday, and kept mentioning ‘Natural Law’…NOT to be confused with ‘Common Law’?…
    Neither of the mentioned types of ‘law’ seemed to apply ti Vinny Eastwood or Billy TK- they experienced Masonic Law that actually runs the country!
    These ‘laws’ are only for the convenience of the ‘Elite’ consisting of Masonic elements, Zio-Communist Globalists, and compromised and unaccountable politicians, the latter refusing to acknowledge the toxicity and dangers of the Covid vaccines when Jabby and Co. were warned of the problems, but went ahead and mandated the lethal jabs anyway contaminating 95% of the Kiwi populations!

  3. Fomrer J3wi$h MP ‘Sir’ John Key is being sued int he U.S. for ‘insider trading’…
    Can’t imagine what he has done or has been doing here in NZ…

    • Martha Stewart got jail time ankle bracelet. But all these politicians are playing the sharemarket, with good nowledge these “Democrats” John Key one of them, Obama his mate.
