“All the reports we have are from the health professionals is that their advice was not to allow this to happen and that somehow a decision has been made to bring this person into New Zealand, at risk to New Zealanders.”
Mahuta says she spoke to Clark about the case but their conversation did not contribute to the decision to evacuate the UN worker.
“The Ministry for Foreign Affairs ensured that the process by which the medevac processes were undertaken was made clear to the Ministry of Health.”
She didn’t ask the Ministry of Health to re-look at the case after speaking with Clark, Mahuta says.
Clark has been contacted for comment.
