Internal Affairs investigation leads to prosecution

On Thursday 21 January, seven individuals and two organisations appeared in Manukau District Court facing a combined total of twenty four dishonestly charges under the Crimes Act and two further charges under the Gambling Act. 

The support of the gaming machine societies involved has been instrumental in this investigation which has been one of the most complex the Department of Internal Affairs has carried out.

The department is committed to ensuring that grant funding benefits the communities it is intended for and will investigate any fraudulent activity and prosecute accordingly.
