$480,000 compo to police addicts

$480,000 compo to police addicts

29.05.2003

The New Zealand Herald

Five former undercover police officers have been paid about $480,000 to settle their long-running claim against the police department for stress and drug addiction.

Individual payments in the settlement, negotiated by the Police Association, vary.

A further 19 former undercover police officers have cases outstanding.

All the officers claimed they suffered post-traumatic stress disorder and became addicted to cannabis and other drugs as a result of working undercover.

They claimed it also affected their career prospects.

Their dispute began in the early 1990s but is yet to be aired in open court.

The Police Association and the Crown Law Office have each spent nearly $800,000 in legal fees on the cases.

The association had pushed for the officers to settle, saying each case would require a five-week trial.

But group spokesman Frank Miessen said the five officers who accepted settlements had sold themselves short.

Mr Miessen said the remaining officers were determined to have their cases heard in court.

Four of the officers with cases pending began proceedings on Tuesday to have their Police Association-appointed lawyers removed.

Lawyer and former association secretary Dr Rob Moodie, who became a facilitator for the group late last year, said the settlement for five officers should be seen as a catalyst to get the outstanding cases dealt with.

Dr Moodie wants the officers to receive a war pension, which police officers were entitled to until a legislative change in the early 1990s.

He also wants the undercover programme reviewed.

"This is a case that's gone completely off the rails," he said.

"Every New Zealander has an obligation to them. The Government needs to look at their cases, realise many of them will never work again and help get the stress out of their lives.

"Over the years, the Crown has become a litigation bully."

Association president Greg O'Connor said the settlement "was about allowing people to move on and get closure on a difficult and demanding period of their lives".

Because the kind of stress a cop feels is special.

In Canada the government increase the taxes on tobacco, and now they
are suing the tobbacco companys for medical costs due to tobacco
related illnesses. I think the word of the day is Morons
