WATCH: The AM Show host Ryan Bridge & Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern debate the issue of the Waikato prisoner leaving Auckland and possibly bringing COVID into the community south of the border.
Should the prisoner have ever been able to leave Auckland? Jacinda Ardern gives her reasons as to why it's not an issue with the release of the prisoner it's self, but the conditions in which he left Auckland and who he left with.
None the less, a mistake that could have seen the Waikato region go into level 3 or possibly level 4, Ryan asks how this could have happened.
