NEWSFLASH: Two Former Saddam Hussein Officials In New Zealand?
In Parliament's Question Time this afternoon New Zealand First Leader Winston Peters has alleged that a former Iraqi Agriculture and Agrarian Reform Minister, and representative to the FAO has been living in New Zealand for a month.
Mr Peters said the individual concerned arrived in the country on a United Nations passport.
Remarkably it appears the man is not the same individual who had his visitors visa revoked, along with that of his wife, yesterday by the New Zealand Immigration Service.
This individual was described as a diplomat and it has since been revealed that he was the ambassador to Cuba.
In her answer the Prime Minister asked Mr Peters to provide information relating to the new Saddam Hussein Minister who he named, so her Government could deal with it as soon as possible.
Scoop will provide the new individual's name as soon as it comes available.
