A report published in state-funded outlet 1News says a 56-year-old man has been arrested and will appear in the Wellington District Court tomorrow.
Police told 1News the man has been charged with accessing a computer system for dishonest purposes.
In addition the Employment Relations Authority has granted an injunction in favour of Te Whatu Ora which prevents ‘publication of any of the data’.
CEO Margie Apa said the man had downloaded a large amount of information, but authorities were still working to determine the full extent of his activities.
