Outgoing Dunedin mayor Dave Cull has taken aim at loan sharks at one of his last official duties before leaving office.

"Personally, I view the loan sharks who pray on the vulnerable as a leeching scourge who pray on the community," Culls said to strong appaulse at the launch of a new community finance programme on Tuesday.

Otago is the latest province to introduce the programme aimed at helping locals get out of financial hardship.

The programme, run by Good Shepherd NZ and the Bank of New Zealand, offers no interest or low-interest loans to people who might traditionally turn to predatory lenders.

Chief executive Richard Fletcher received between $510,000 and $520,000.

Fletcher says the company had to increase wages to "employ and retain highly skilled and qualified specialists", but Aurora whistle blower Richard Healey says households will be picking up the tab when they are slapped with "huge" price rises next year, expected to be about $500 or possibly more.

The daughter of a man who died just over a year after being punched at a petrol station is angry there will not be any "justice".

Nigel Landreth was bleeding from his ears when he was found by a tanker driver on the forecourt of Mobil Forbury, Dunedin, about 10.30pm on Saturday, July 7, 2018.

He died in Dunedin Hospital on Sunday night – 14 months after he was attacked.

Sergeant Kallum Croudis says the attacker cannot be charged with Landreth's death because he died "well over" the time period of one year and one day when someone could be held criminally responsible for the killing of another.
