The Hunting of the Nark

Fran O'Sullivan provides her own terms of reference for the inquiry into the Telecom leak. Highlights include:

Was the billion-dollar leaker working for Telecom back [in 2003, when the loop was not unbundled] and was he or she part of a nexus of well-connected players paid from the telco's alleged $30 million Government relations budget?

Which business organisations does Telecom belong to and help fund?

How many MPs hold Telecom shares through their trusts and are frequent guests of Telecom?

Investigate how many former Beehive advisers are paid lobbyists or consultants to Telecom.
