Parliamentary messenger not charged over Telecom leak

Michael Ryan, the parliamentary messenger who leaked the cabinet documents outlining the government's new regulatory package for the telecommunications industry to Telecom New Zealand won't be charged by the police, TVNZ reports.

Amazingly enough, the police says Ryan's leaking of the documents does not amount to a criminal matter. The NZPA has a story with some comments from Ryan here.

I suppose we shouldn't be surprised that Ryan goes scot-free for the NZ$2 billion leak and now has a new job next week.
