C.E.O. Admits Roles Mixed Up at Immigration

Edmund Zuniga

The Senate Special Select Committee called C.E.O. in the Ministry of Immigration and Nationality, Edmund Zuniga, to testify this morning. Chief of command behind Minister Godwin Hulse, he is responsible for setting up policy and procedure for an important ministry. Before his current post, Zuniga served as Auditor General and is therefore also familiar with that institution’s work. Asked to comment on the basis on which things went wrong in his current department, Zuniga told senators it came down to a mix-up in roles.
