92 The Auditor General's report, XXXX. Kriegler took exception with many of the AG's findings, claiming that contrary to an agreement reached; he was not consulted about any aspect of the report. Kriegler: "Bad faith. I had an undertaking from the Auditor General that we would sit down and debate each and every one of his queries in detail. I am still waiting for him to come back to me. When last I saw him I refused to speak to him because I said I don't talk to people who don't keep their word. I think it was written in bad faith. They were at the IEC offices within a month of our having been appointed and they wanted to sit in on our deliberations and I told them to go and get stuffed. I was not a government agency. I was an independent agency. We were not going to work under their supervision. They could audit us subsequently. From that day on we didn't see eye to eye. I think that there's a political agenda written into it as well." Interview with Judge Johann Kriegler, 1 Dec. 1995.
