Andrew Little faces legal challenge unless he apologises to Scenic Hotel group

  • Labour leader Andrew Little has been given a week to retract and apologise for his comments that a Niue resort tender process “stunk to high heaven” or face defamation proceedings.

Last month Little called on the Auditor-General to investigate Scenic Hotel Group being awarded a management contract at the Matavai Resort.

He questioned the timing of the Government contract a month after Scenic Hotel founder Earl Hagaman donated $101,000 to the National Party.
