TVNZ report May 4:We destroyed the documents...
Telecom claims the report simply turned up. Spokesperson Bruce Parkes says a staff member received an unsolicited copy of the report.
"I'm not sure where it came from and we immediately did the right thing by informing the minister's office."
Morning of May 5:
Telecom spokesman John Goulter told the New Zealand Herald destroying the paper was "the proper thing to do, that's what our legal advice was to do, so there was no question it could be distributed any further".
Oh, hang on, no we didn't actually destroy all the documents, but we have no idea where they came from...
Later in the day, May 5, the NZ Herald reported:
Telecom says it still has a copy of the Cabinet paper that was leaked to it but has destroyed several copies it made.
Mr Goulter, asked earlier whether Telecom had considered that by destroying the paper it could hamper the inquiry, said the inquiry was not a factor in the paper being destroyed.
Wait, I think we might know where the documents came from...
NZ Herald report today: Telecom is understood to know who leaked the document but refused to confirm or deny this yesterday or to say whether that information was being handed to the commission.
But in a signal it was volunteering the person's identity, or was likely to, Telecom spokesman John Goulter said the investigation had reached some "firm conclusions".
"I think it will help their inquiry and mean their inquiry will be quite swift."
