From: Victoria Muninn
Dear Ministry of Health,
I request from Dr Brian Roche a fulsome (as is possible) description of his 2010 trip to Las Vegas with then Prime Minister's chief of staff, Wayne Eagleson, Mark Unsworth and Roger Sowry.
In the context of Covid, and given the aforementioned persons' clients and pecuniary interests, I believe that this OIA has great public interest and has implications for the national security of Aotearoa-New Zealand.
