Speaker Trevor Mallard has been accused of destroying an innocent man’s life, after falsely accusing a parliamentary member of being a rapist.
Mallard's in the firing line amid revelations taxpayers footed a $330,000 bill for his settlement and legal costs of a defamation action - after he wrongly called a staff member a rapist.
Newstalk ZB Political editor Barry Soper told Andrew Dickens the Prime Minister and Labour Party are not living up to their own words and values.
“If Jacinda Ardern pleads well-being and kindness as she does, there has been none of that applied to the man at the centre of this.
“He’s now very ill as a result of the accusation made against him, his life has been destroyed. That is not well-being or kindness.”
