The Ahmed Zaoui Case – The Gordon Campbell Series

FULL COVERAGE: Zaoui Case – The Gordon Campbell Series

The Ahmed Zaoui Case - Injustice On The Cheap

Gordon Campbell writes: Unless you’re talking about money, New Zealand seems fairly relaxed about the potential abuse of state power. The Auditor-General, IRD and Treasury may be funded sufficiently to keep an eye on how money is being spent and recouped - but the agencies supposed to protect our rights as citizens have to get by on starvation rations and, in some cases, with a questionable level of independence.

Justice: Gordon Campbell - The Zaoui Story Up Close And Personal Former Listener journalist Gordon Campbell continues his series for Scoop examining the Zaoui case and the review currently being carried out by the Inspector General of Intelligence and Security, Justice Paul Neazor. The SIS issued a security risk certificate against Mr Zaoui in 2003. Finally, four years later, a review of that document is underway. Gordon Campbell takes us back over the five years Mr Zaoui has been in New Zealand and looks at the background of New Zealand's most famous security intelligence/refugee case. More>>

On the big picture, the poll predictions were dead right. In the end, the Democratic Party won a clear victory in the House, and lost as expected in the Senate, where it had been defending at least 10 seats in regions that had voted heavily for Trump in 2016. More>>
