Firstly, and importantly the bravery of Ms George to make public a very traumatic experience needs to be acknowledged. I can attest to the commitment of Alana to her goal and love for the people of the Cook Islands. As to the TMO and Mr (Bob) Williams, the lack of proper processes, the lack of trust and possible interference is once again evident.
The culture, processes and failures by the TMO in supporting and maintaining the wellness of staff is yet again evident.
I now call on the Minister of Heath, who has remained silent on the TMO issues, to resign along with the SOH Williams.
A full and proper investigation by non-government entity be undertaken and appropriate compensation be provided to the victims of the failures of the TMO. Mr Williams relies are less than accurate it would appear, particularly related to the Commissioner of Police response.
Alina, Kia kaha and aroha from all of us who know her.
