Tuesday October 01, 2019 Written by Published in Politics

The Office of the Prime Minister has rejected a report that Prime Minister Henry Puna was “frustrated when Evans won the internationally-renowned Goldman Environmental Prize for her work creating Marae Moana”, according to sources, “as he believed he was its champion”.

The Prime Minister’s Office categorically denied Puna had ever taken the view, or held the position that he believed he was Marae Moana’s champion, or that he should have received this award himself.
