Politics: Brash Wants Cops To Explain Why Labour Not Prosecuted

National Leader Don Brash has sought an explanation from the police about what his calls: "the glaring inadequacies in their inquiry into the Labour Party’s spending on its pledge card and brochure". Dr Brash has written to Police Commissioner Howard Broad outlining a list of concerns about the investigation. See... National asks cops to explain on pledge card probe [1]

    Foreign Affairs: NZ Sends Fresh Squad Of Bobbies To Timor

    The second contingent of New Zealand Police will be leaving for Timor-Leste next week to be deployed under the umbrella of UNMIT, the United Nations mission.

    Text & Audio: Govt Plans Changes To Frequency Allocation Plans

    The Government has announced it will provide for up to four new FM radio stations in each region of NZ, and strengthen the role of local broadcasters. It plans to auction commercial frequencies with conditions yet to be finalised. Communications Minister, David Cunliffe, talks to KiwiFM's Wammo about small stations on low power frequencies or stations that have out grown their position or license moving to either the new commercial or non-commercial frequencies. A student station like bFM could be an example of this. Russell Brown is also IVed on the issue.

    Foreign Affairs: Peters Call North Korea Nuclear Threat "Intolerable"

    North Korea's statement that it is planning to test a nuclear weapon is inflammatory and completely incompatible with efforts to build security in the Asia-Pacific region, Foreign Minister Winston Peters said today. North Korea last night announced plans for a nuclear weapon test, although it gave no time frame. Pyongyang has previously said it has nuclear weapons, but is not known to have conducted any test to prove its claim. See... Peters condemns Nth Korea's nuclear test threat [1]
