Len Brown faces conflict of interest allegation

Auckland Mayor Len Brown has been accused of acting with a conflict of interest at a council committee meeting today.

Veteran anti-corruption campaigner Penny Bright was attempting to read out letters from the police  in regard to a complaint against Mayor Brown, but he refused to let her speak and ordered security staff to remove Bright from the venue.

Speaking later from Auckland police station, Bright told InvestigateDaily that the mayor had taken direct action on a matter he was directly implicated in, and she believed he had a clear conflict of interest in trying to prevent members of the public from speaking about him.
