Police staff set to help fraud office tackle backlog - Business - NZ Herald News


An increase from $5 million to $7.4m for the SFO, Serious Fraud Office, is still not enough to handle corruption in New Zealand.

SFO is now asking for a revival of secondment schemes from police.

New Zealand Herald reports the background:

The SFO faced abolition between September 2007 and October 2008 until the election of the National-led Government. The Labour Government it took over from had wanted to merge the SFO with the new police Organised and Financial Crime Agency, which National opposed at the time."
