Lobby New Zealand is today calling on Human Rights Commissioner Paul Hunt to resign immediately, following revelations that a taxpayer funded koha was made to the Waikato Mongrel Mob, under his watch.

In no circumstance should a public servant overlook a donation of any kind, funded by the taxpayer, to a gang.

Hunt’s role has become grossly untenable following the revelations. New Zealanders deserve better from their Human Rights Commissioner.
