Tepaki Group staff have fobbed off media inquiries describing them as "lazy" and a "timewaster." Rarotonga based Tepaki Group representative William Framhein today said that "Tepaki is in Rarotonga." "I suggest you do your research more thoroughly, so watch out for details in local news papers," he told Avaiki Nius Agency. Questions sent to Tepaki Group in New Zealand were forwarded by staff in Wellington to Framhein in Rarotonga with comments attached. "Timewaster who's too lazy to do his research has questions (see below)," said Wellington staff. "Good for a laugh." Framhein forwarded the head office comments and his own to Avaiki Nius Agency but did not provide any answers. Questions were as follows. 1. Hilton and Hilton world wide websites make no mention of the Cook Islands. Can you give me contact information for people you have been discussing these projects with? 2. How firm is the interest from Hilton? 3. Have you any comments on recent troubles with the Investors Forum? 4. Tepaki Group has been talking about the Vaimaanga and other hotel developments in the Cooks for over a decade now. How many projects has the group actually completed? 5. What do you say to critics that your group is just trying to talk up the project with no money of its own to contribute?
