Yesterday, a statement was published regarding the resolution of the complaints to the Judicial Committee against Jeff McVean and Kate Laurie.

The parties to the complaint attended a private mediation on Monday, 27 November 2017. Neither ESNZ nor the Judicial Committee were involved in that process. ESNZ and the Judicial Committee were unaware of the date of the mediation.

The parties agreed to resolve the complaints between themselves. Neither ESNZ nor the Judicial Committee has imposed any penalty on Mr McVean or Ms Laurie. Any penalties/sanctions were agreed by them.

ESNZ congratulates the parties for resolving matters between them. ESNZ will not make any further comment until the Judicial Committee has considered the matter further.

ESNZ reminds members of the need to exercise caution when commenting on social media sites at all times.
