Revelations and confessions around the Covid-19 leaks

From Lately, 10:20 am on 7 July 2020

The Clutha-Southland MP Hamish Walker has confessed to leaking the private details of people infected with the coronavirus to the media.  

And in a further twist, Michelle Boag has admitted sending the information to Mr Walker.

The Health Minister Chris Hipkins says he is deeply disappointed that politicians are involved, but the investigation by Michael Heron QC will carry on.

Karyn Hay asks Professor of Law, Andrew Geddis, from Otago University for his thoughts on these latest developments.
