“We will work closely with the families concerned. It is only right that they have the space and opportunity to privately reflect on the findings of the Commission. We ask people to respect their privacy during this time,” she said.

“I know that this would have been a challenging process for whanau, survivors and witnesses of the terrorist attack and I want to acknowledge their engagement. We will provide additional comments after the Report is presented to Parliament,” she said.
