Former CEO of Hepatitis Foundation speaks out

From Morning Report, 7:53 am on 27 November 2019

The former chief executive of the Hepatitis Foundation says the board chair who racked up more than $128,000 of travel expenses should resign.

As RNZ reported yesterday a two-year investigation into the charity has revealed the foundation splashed out on lavish dinners, flights and hotels, and could not account for thousands of dollars of credit card expenses.

John Hornell left the foundation in 2015 after eighteen years.

He attended the dinners at what he calls fancy restaurants, and describes them as extravagant.

He speaks to Corin Dann.

Board chair Professor Chris Cunningham has not responded to calls from RNZ.
