Evening Post

IRD INQUIRY: The Evening banner story today is a report that a rare glimpse into the business affairs of strippers, cannabis growers, thieves and prostitutes has been provided in papers filed for the parliamentary inquiry into Inland Revenue.

SCOTT WATSON TRIAL: The paper leads with story accompanied by a photo of Gerald Hope holding a backpack similar to his daughter's which she had with her when she disappeared. The report says Gerald Hope became emotional today as he told a High Court jury is was impossible that his daughter had gone away without contacting her family.

Also on the front page:

- HISTORY: a report that Adolf Hitler cited New Zealanders living in trees and clambering around on all fours as an example of his genocidal theories on "inferior" races, according to historians. The report quotes a paper quoted from in the RSA Review.

- KOSOVO: a report that Serb soldiers and civilians today streamed out of Kosovo to jeers and a few stones from exultant ethnic Albanians as Nato forces found the first apparent mass graves since entering the Serb province;

- X-RAY SHORTAGE: a report that Hundreds of Wellingtonians are missing out on x-rays and diagnostic scans every year, say frustrated GPs.


- SOE APPOINTMENT: a report that a large political donor to the National Party has been appointed to the board of the SOE Catalyst;

- RNZ: a report that the RNZ board is set to face an embarrassing vote of no-confidence by staff over controversial moves to contract out news;

KOSOVO: The editorial warns it is not a time for NATO triumphalism.
