Justice says he was replaced this week by an acting GM of ICT Services, Kathryn McInteer. The ministry came under fire from Labour’s ICT spokesperson Clare Curran on Tuesday, who claimed there had been a serious security issue with its database systems. The ministry denied there had been a privacy breach.
