National's police spokesperson says PM should fire Haumaha

From Morning Report, 7:45 am on 20 December 2018

A report by the police watchdog has found Deputy Police Commisisoner Wally Haumaha did belittle and act inappropriately to two women staff members. But the report doesn't find workplace bullying occurred. The Independent Police Conduct Authority found there were two instances where Mr Haumaha behaved inappropriately and unprofessionally towards two staff who subsequently left a project at Police Headquarters. An earlier review upheld the process that ended in Mr Haumaha's appointment as Deputy Police Commisisoner. A spokesperson for the Police Minister Stuart Nash says he won't comment until the report is officially released later today. National's Police spokesperson is Chris Bishop
