A private dive training institute in New Zealand, Intueri Education Group, is facing charges regarding the accident that cost the life of a Malaysian diving student that took place on April 2014. The victim, Bin Moien Luqmanulhakim was participating in a dive training for the completion of his assessment at Lake Puketirini.
The charges have been granted by Worksafe New Zeland, an association that regulates safety in work place environments across the country. The charges are in accordance with HSE Act in relation to hazard prevention in the work place and contractor certification requirements.
Intueri said that the authorities have its full cooperation pertaining to the matter and will comply upon getting directives from the court.
Intueri is the largest vocational education group in New Zealand. It conducted its initial public offering just a month after the incident. The company is most likely to face charge fine of $250,000 dollars per breach or $500,000 for reckless conduct penalty. The authorities may also decide if the company should provide reparation payments to the family of the victim.
