Complaint filed over Weatherston prison interview

As predicted by this blogger the Corrections Department has written to TV3 regarding a journalist who it said visited Clayton Weatherston in jail without authorisation.

TV3 reporter lies to CorrectionsThe documents I released under the OIA clearly show that Alison Horwood described her relationship to Clayton Weatherston as a “(family) friend”.

She at no time sought the permission of the CEO and so is clearly in breach of the regulations pertaining to journalists access to prisoners.
