Balance

In the interests of balance re FFM's post about corruption in Dunedin Police, I actually read the IPCA report. From paragraph 128:

"The Authority stresses that, in making this finding, it has found no evidence of actual bias on the part of Constable Henderson, whether in the form of corruption or attempting to pervert the course of justice. Nor isthere any evidence of misconduct or neglect of duty by Constable Henderson. It is notable that ConstableHenderson himself raised with his superiors the fact that his appointment to the ‘ACC desk’ would involve direct dealings with his father-in-law. He received assurances that the relationship did not prevent him fulfilling that role."
