Petition for Action Against Stephen Cook, New Zealand Herald on Sunday sign now

We the undersigned wish to register our dismay at recent allegations that have emerged regarding the actions of the New Zealand Herald on Sunday assistant editor Stephen Cook, which appear to call his basic journalistic and personal ethics into question.

We refer to allegations made by Mrs Deborah Gerbich, who has provided emails to the New Zealand police which appear to indicate that Mr Cook threatened to release personal information regarding Mrs Gerbich if she did not provide information to him for use in a story.

We request that the New Zealand Herald and/or the Herald on Sunday take prompt action to investigate these allegations, cooperating fully with the relevant authorities. Should this allegation regarding Mrs Gerbich be proven - thus calling into serious question Mr Cook's adherence to minimal standards of journalistic and personal ethics - we expect that the New Zealand Herald will take action in line with the magnitude of these failings and terminate Mr Cook's employment forthwith.
