Turia Shocked at SIS Rumours
12 November 2004
We were shocked by an article that ‘Intelligence Sources say SIS investigating Maori Party’ stated Tariana Turia, Co-leader of the Maori Party today.
“We are confident that the rumour is not correct given the requirements of the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service” said Mrs Turia.
The Mission Statement of the New zealand Security Intelligence Service has explicit requirements that “the Service does not take any action for the purpose of further or harming the interest of any political party”.
