Auditor General did a good
Auditor General did a good interview - Tasi ‘Ahio:
First of all, Pohiva [Tui’onetoa] was not interviewed on NZ TV1 news, he was interviewed on a Tongan TV program (Triangle), and he was interviewed in Tongan, not in English.
Secondly, in my view Pohiva did a good interview, he just answered the questions the interviewer asked, about his jobs and tasks as Auditor General, laid down by the Act. He never made any comment, that in my view may harm the diplomatic relationship between Tonga and NZ, he just commented on the differences of his findings, and the view of the independent auditor appointed by NZ government. - Tasi ‘Ahio
