Veterans' Support Act 2014

The enacting of the Veterans' Support Act 2014 is the start of a new chapter in how New Zealand recognises and supports veterans and their whanau. It allows Veterans' Affairs New Zealand (VANZ) to deliver a greater range of health, social and vocational rehabilitation services to current and former service personnel.

Providing service personnel and their whanau with accurate, timely and understandable information about research into the impacts of service is an important part of VANZ's new rehabilitation focus. Consequently, I am pleased to inform you that all research into impacts of ionising radiation on New Zealand's veterans has been published on the VANZ wesite, along with many other relevant documents. The web address is :

http:/www.veteransaffairs. mil.nz/about/whats-new/events-and-research-relating-to-New-Zealand's-nuclear-veterans.html

This is the start of an ongoing programme. Research into the impacts of service on other groups of service personnel and their whanau will be published on the VANZ website as resources permit. There webpages will be 'living documents' that will be updated as new information about deployments become available and new reserarch about the impacts of service is published.

We look forward to working with you to improve the delivery of services to veterans and their whanau.

Yours sincerely

Gregory Crott

Acting General Manager

Welcome to the Mururoa Vets website

In 1973, the then Prime Minister of New Zealand, Norman Kirk, stated that the French where disobeying the World Court by continuing to test Nuclear bombs in the Pacific, namely at Mururoa Atoll. He sent a Government Representative the right honourable Fraser Colman, and the frigate HMNZS Otago, and then the frigate HMNZS Canterbury to stimulate world opinion against nuclear testing.

This site is intended to keep crew members of HMNZS Otago and HMNZS Canterbury that went to Mururoa Atoll (sometimes spelt Moruroa Atoll) in June, July and August 1973, the news media personel, the Government representative, and a representative from the National Laboratory, informed of medical, and other developments as they effect us.
