Investigate has confirmed that the real sequence of events that involve Howard Broad contrasts sharply with what he has told the public. A former police colleague of Broad's is prepared to testify on oath to a Royal Commission that:

[quote]"He was there, reveling in the video. He loved it. I was standing with him. The video also featured a pig, and the actors appeared to me to be mentally handicapped. Broad was laughing."[/quote]

The following major allegations are contained in a 17 page special investigation in the June issue of Investigate magazine, the result of two years of background inquiries and six weeks of intensive investigation:

  1. That current Police Commissioner Howard Broad had, and was watching, bestiality videos at his going away party from the Dunedin CIB at 19 Arawa St
  2. That current Police Commissioner Howard Broad fondled junior staff whilst stationed at the Dunedin CIB
  3. That Howard Broad, when he stated that only a "few" officers were involved in sexual misconduct, either knew or should have known of the extensive sexual misconduct in the Dunedin CIB
  4. That Police National Headquarters, Dunedin Police and the Labour Government helped quash an investigation into a child sex, bondage and bestiality ring operating in Dunedin in 1984 run by the father of a police officer and attended by at least one Labour cabinet minister
  5. That current Attorney-General Michael Cullen and the current Minister responsible for CYFS, David Benson-Pope, helped run damage control over the child sex, bondage and bestiality case in 1985
  6. That current Labour coalition MPs Pete Hodgson, Tim Barnett, George Hawkins and Matt Robson were aware of major allegations of police misconduct from 2000 onwards, including the existence of videotapes of police rapes and bestiality involving police officers.
  7. That by failing to rein in police corruption brought to their attention in the eighties and again in 2000, the Labour government has permitted the culture of corruption to widen in that time, wrecking more lives
  8. That former Wellington District Commander and current Police National Headquarters officer, Superintendent John Kelly indecently assaulted a number of women, including the daughter of a previous police commissioner.
  9. That Dunedin and Christchurch Police had arrangements to turn a blind eye to organised crime – including underage sex and drug dealing – in return for sexual favours from brothels.
  10. That police have maintained files on key politicians and public figures capable of being used to blackmail the government, judges, lobby groups and even police association members into supporting the status quo
  11. That Dunedin police officers, former and current, have been involved in multiple rapes of junior female police staff, prostitutes and civilians, drug deals, and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, including falsifying charges
  12. That several of the top officers in the David Bain case, including Milton Weir, were allegedly corrupt police officers
  13. That the officer involved in the alleged rape of a court worker, detailed in our last issue and cleared by Police National Headquarters last month, is also a corrupt officer
  14. That the culture of police corruption, far from being localised to the Bay of Plenty or historic, extends to a large number of jurisdictions because of staff movements, and continues to the present day
  15. That the only way to weed the bad cops out of the force is a Royal Commission, because the Old Boys Network within the police is currently looking after its own interests and bringing discredit to the many hardworking honest police who do not have the institutional power to bring change

Wow, that is a huge list of allegations, I don't think they can sweep these under the carpet and "move on". If true, this is the end of this government as of today.
