    • whateva next? 1.1

      Looks like Mount Eden full of criminals, the ones inside have been charged, the ones running it have avoided being caught, until …..nah, they will still get away with it, and we will probably end up paying damages for upsetting them.

    • Anne 1.2

      You can’t make knee-jerk reactions, I’ve heard lots of allegations”
      – Corrections Minister Sam Loti-Iiga

      So a prison counsellor has been told by prisoners and probably former staff (and was told about another one today) of gang rapes and Loti-liga calls them knee-jerk reactions?

    • Macro 1.3

      But Micky Serco is rated as “exceptional” – they have been telling us how good they are for 18 months – and they are a private corporation so what they say must be true.
      And anyway they can run a prison far cheaper than the Govt – so that’s that.
      Let’s just forget all this silly stuff ever happened – and isn’t John such a nice guy.

      • mickysavage 1.3.1

        Yep and apart from the booze and the drugs and the dropping and the gang rapes everything is fine and lets pay them more money …

        • maui 1.3.1.1

          And the use of prison vans as ambulances for critically injured prisoners that don’t go to hospitals, only other prisons.

  1. Pascals bookie 2

    Not the government’s best day, all in all.

    The ‘contract stuff out’ model fell on it’s face, and the high court told them they were arseholes.

    • mickysavage 2.1

      Yep this week has I think been their worst. And the High Court told them twice that they were arseholes!

      • Pascals bookie 2.1.1

        Well IANAL, but to be fair, I think they told them they were arseholes in the BORA case, and incompetent in the PGF case.

  2. RedBaronCV 3

    So are we looking forward to criminal charges being laid against the serco bosses for the crimes committed while they possibly aided and abetted?

    • AmaKiwi 3.1

      We only lay charges against criminals. You can recognize them because they have brown skin and never finished high school.

      (Please don’t reply thinking I am serious.)

      • RedBaronCV 3.1.1

        Yeah I agree – this government is pretty selective about who it criminalises, and somehow I don’t see it being the rich white guys who have known that serious crimes where being committed against people in the prison ( or maybe on remand and guilty of nothing) are going to get done for aiding and abetting a cover up of the crime.

        And the guys being hurt seem so young – how have we failed them so badly.

  3. Craig Glen Eden 4

    Corrections takes over the running of ME Prision after a death and many other very serious allegations. Not only that but the Governments private prison experiment has been shown to be a total failure just like Charter schools and the herald has it running as the ninth story on its website. SERIOUSLY.

    • tc 4.1

      they aren’t failures, both have transferred public funds into private pockets so job done.

      The fact that some crims and kids got a raw deal doesn’t bother them in the slightest and they’ll gamble on it not bothering wider nz too much either.

  4. Craig Glen Eden 5

    That should read ninth story. Could you fix that Micky it won’t let me correct it from here in the USA.
