Te Pāti Māori claims 'lacklustre response' by Oranga Tamariki and Minister

From Midday Report, 12:15 pm on 21 October 2022

The internal review into Oranga Tamariki's 'litany of failures' is overdue.

The agency received multiple warnings, reports of concern, and whānau pleas for intervention in the lead up to the murder of 5 year old Malachi Subecz.

The Children's minister Kelvin Davis and Oranga Tamariki chief executive Chappie Te Kani are waiting for the review's findings before acting.

Te Pāti Māori co-leader Debbie Ngarewa-Packer spoke to Māni Dunlop.
