Video captures Labour summer camp party

Jacinda Ardern says the Labour Party dropped the ball in its handling of alleged sexual assaults at a Young Labour

A new allegation has surfaced about a sexual assault at a Labour youth camp.

Ms. Ardern said that the man who had been accused was ejected from the camp the morning after the party and that the 16-year-olds were "asked what they'd like done".

If the woman wanted to offer any help to the review the Labour Party is undertaking of its processes around dealing with sexual misconduct, she would be welcome to do that, Kirton said.

Labour general secretary Andrew Kirton has informed the Prime Minister's office of a second sexual assault alleged to have happened at a Labour Party event in the last decade. By that point, one of the victims had complained to a senior Labour lawmaker about the party's lack of response.

"The Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act - which Labour opposed as making it too easy for young people to alcohol at the time - has been breached here by the supply of alcohol to young people, it appears, by the political party that said the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act was too lax".

Later on Tuesday, Mr. Kirton said another person had since come forward to lodge a complaint about sexual misconduct at a Labour Party event that occured in the past 10 years.

He says he was contacted that day by someone who told him there had been an incident at this event similar to what is alleged to have taken place at a Young Labour summer camp in February.

Dogs must be leashed during the event, but owners afterward may let their dogs run off leash in the 3-acre, fenced-in Bark Park. The bunny will be spreading 10,000 eggs filled with candy and toys across The Green to be hunted.

Labour's general secretary did not tell police, the teens' parents or the Prime Minister; saying it was a matter of confidentiality.

She denied it was a problem that she had only found out about the alleged assault on Monday.

Kirton has apologised Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern for the handling of the matter.

He said he couldn't speculate on whether this would encourage more victims to come forward.

Mr Kirton says he's now working with the person who made the complaint, and has encouraged them to go to the police if they want to.

The National and Green parties have also held residential camps but said they had received no complaints.
