Judith Collins is at the centre of a new ACC controversy.
It follows her releasing information suggesting former ACC chair John Judge replaced a computer and wiped another causing a delay in the investigations into privacy breaches at ACC
John Judge claims the minister's comments are untrue and blacken his character.
He says the information's untrue and describes Ms Collins comments as pathetic.
Judith Collins is refusing to respond.
"Look I'm not going to get into name calling, Mr Judge," she says.
Ms Collins is defending her release of the information saying formal requests had been made and she decided to be up front and get the information out.
Labour MP Andrew Little says it's a bit rich for the minister to be making such comments as they cast aspersions on Mr Judge's character.
He says Ms Collins has initiated defamation proceedings against others, himself included, in such circumstances.
A full investigation's being demanded into the actions of former ACC chairman John Judge and the way he's treated computers central to investigations into ACC privacy breaches.
Ms Collins has also said parts of it were destroyed.
Green MP Kevin Hague says if this claim is correct then surely it amounts to an offence under the Privacy Act.
"The potentially criminal aspect of John Judge's behaviour I think requires police involvement."
