Turei says she made right decision to feed her kid


She’s admitting she lied and says she will pay it back, but Green Party co-leader Metiria Turei is not ready to offer an an apology for her admitted benefit fraud in the 1990s. In an emotional interview with TVNZ yesterday, Turei said she didn’t regret it. ‘‘I’m not going to condemn anyone who is making the same decisions now that I had to make then,’’ Turei said. ‘‘They were the choices I had. I took care of my baby, I got my degree, we got out of welfare. I think I made the right decision at the time.’’
