Cook Is government 'allowed' importer to pay lower tax

Updated 1 February 2013, 10:39 AEST

Cook Islands MP Norman George has accused the government of failing to act on an investigation into an arrangement between Customs and the Cook Islands Trading Company, under which the company paid a lower rate of import duty.

The Cook Islands Trading Company is the agent for the soft-drink company Coca Cola. The Cook Islands Audit Office completed its report two years ago into the arrangement, and Mr George says the government has yet to take action on it.
