The Whangarei Advocate reports the Department of Conservation has been charged by MBIE under the HSE Act following the death of a Romanian volunteer working on Raoul Island.

The man disappeared on 2 January this year and is believed to have been swept out to sea while taking water temperature readings.

In 2006 the Department of Labour decided not to prosecute DoC after an employee working on Raoul Island was presumed to have been killed in a volcanic eruption.
