Who is Gerald Shirtcliff?

There were a couple of aftershocks in Christchurch today - one of them the biggest to hit the city since July.
No damage, and no injuries, but two more reminders of all Canterbury’s been through in the past two years.
For the most part, remarkably so, the earthquakes have brought out the best in people. But not everyone.
We'd put Gerald Shirtcliff near the top of that last. He's the man who oversaw the construction of the CTV building.
Well over half the people who died in the February earthquake were in that building, and the man with whom the construction buck stopped is a cheat, a fraud and a liar.
In Australia, he's known as William Fisher - a model of respectability, with an impressive career in engineering.
But a month long investigation by Press reporter Martin van Beynen has exposed who he really is.
