The penalties by the EWRB for this are inadequate.
It is fraud, and puts many people's safety at risk.

This is second hand anecdotal since I've never worked in construction: I've recently spoken with a construction worker south of Christchurch who says ex-Chch rebuild firms and workers are regularly undercutting local quotes and leaving behind half-baked houses.

Aside from the recurring shoddy repair work done on earthquake damaged homes, I'd hate to think what that says for the many new-builds here in Christchurch.

We might have our own subsequent "leaky homes" crisis around the corner.

Looking at the Stuff article CCTV photo just reinforces the need to have quality cameras. Likewise, most dairy robbery photos are very low quality - may as well look through a grubby fly screen door at 20m away.

So he cannot register for 5 years ... he can’t regiter anyway he is a fraud ..... he is prob still doing PEW and filling out fake COC’s
Australia would have put him in a detention centre and exported him.

Presumably the MBIE investigation won't be the end of the matter... If we assume the guy was initially working toward registration then stopping him getting registered for a while is about the most they can do from this line of prosecution. I'm guessing the case for fraud charges is still being built up?
