Video captures Labour summer camp party

Labour general secretary Andrew Kirton will keep his job but Ardern says he should have followed up with the victims

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.

A woman has complained to Labour's general secretary Andrew Kirton about another sexual assault at a different event to the youth camp incident from last month that involved four 16-year-olds.

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

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.

The former Crown prosecutor said that the description of the incident, in which an apparently drunk 20-year-old put his hand down the trousers of three 16-year-olds, would be termed indecent assault.

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

Kirton said the new complainant contacted him on Tuesday morning and he has since spoken to her and offered her both counselling support and help approaching police, if she chooses to do so.

But she said Labour officials now acknowledged that "we should have brought in the professionals straight away".

"Also the delay with the communication after two of them got back in touch was not acceptable".

The president of National's youth wing, Stefan Sunde said it continued to review and update its processes for ensuring its events were safe and responsible. Asked if it was acceptable given Labour's principled stance on sexual harassment issues, Kirton replied: "Well, we could have done better".

Ms. Ardern said that the 20-year-old was not a Young Labour member or part of the staff and that she did know why he was there.

The Labour Party has admitted it received a complaint about sexual misconduct at a separate party event to the one that created headlines on Monday.

Mr Kirton says while they had the interests of the young people at heart, he admits they handled the situation poorly.
