Story of homeless man sneaking into 5-star isolation hotel remains a mystery

Labour's call for National to put up or shut up over claims a homeless man snuck into an Auckland isolation hotel has been met with radio silence.

Housing Minister Megan Woods sent National's Michael Woodhouse a letter telling him to prove his story - which he went public with last week in a bid to illustrate poor border management.

Woodhouse has yet to prove the homeless man exists, but says just because there's no evidence of the hotel stay story, it doesn't mean it didn't happen.

Nita Blake-Persen filed this report.
