Second sexual assault allegation surfaces for Labour Party

Second sexual assault allegation surfaces for Labour Party”

"If there's something we can do, we're looking into what we can do to investigate this and make sure anyone else who has something they want to tell us, then they can".

Video has emerged on social media which 1 NEWS believes was filmed at a party at a Labour Party youth camp last month which is at the centre of sexual assault allegations.

Ms. Ardern said that the man who had been accused was ejected from the camp the morning after the party and that the 16-year-olds were "asked what they'd like done".

"Another incident occurred at an event a few years ago".

The former Crown prosecutor said that the description of the incident, in which an apparently drunk 20-year-old put his hand down the trousers of three 16-year-olds, would be termed indecent assault.

Those affected had not been offered counselling until nearly a month after the event.

The National and Green parties have also held residential camps but said they had received no complaints.

"We could have brought the professional help in earlier, even though we were trying to be led by those involved".

Mr Kirton on Monday apologised for the distress caused and said a review was under way into the policies and processes around the annual camps. Asked if it was acceptable given Labour's principled stance on sexual harassment issues, Kirton replied: "Well, we could have done better".

The prime minister also rejected suggestions party officials should have reported the incident to police against the wishes of the teens. By that point, one of the victims had complained to a senior Labour lawmaker about the party's lack of response.

Ms. Ardern said that the 20-year-old was not a Young Labour member or part of the staff and that she did know why he was there.

Andrew Kirton was contacted by Young Labour on Monday night to say a woman had come forward saying she had been sexually assaulted at an event in the last ten years.

"Two hours later she heard from the general secretary that he had been in touch with the young person and the situation was being handled appropriately", the spokesman said.
