Governor’s Statement on Tax Department Investigation

News Release from December 15, 2011

Honolulu – The Department of Taxation has referred to the Department of the Attorney General possible internal security breaches for review and investigation. Governor Neil Abercrombie today released the following statement:

“To the extent that any wrongful activity has taken place, anyone who has participated in or has had knowledge of these activities that date back to at least 2008 will be brought to account.

“The Department of Taxation and the Department of the Attorney General will be taking the necessary actions as deemed appropriate.”


The akamai reader will note that this short and information-free announcement purports to identify the problem, identify the culprits, and pronounce sentence -- without actually identifying anybody or anything.
