Turei agrees to pay back the benefit she lied to get


Green Party co-leader Metiria Turei says she will pay back the money she owes Work and Income after recently admitting she lied while she was a beneficiar­y. The MP had previously said she would be willing to pay back the money she took if the Ministry of Social Developmen­t followed up on her admission. In a piece penned for The Guardian website, Turei explained why she decided to reveal her deception in her conference speech last Sunday and detailed the vitriol and abuse she had received since.
