John Key must release Warner Bros documents

David
CUNLIFFE

Labour Leader


15 September 2014 MEDIA STATEMENT
John Key must release Warner Bros documents

John Key must release all minutes, notes, briefings and emails relating to his meetings with Warner Bros in New Zealand and in the United States, Labour Leader David Cunliffe says.

“Today an emailed surfaced claiming the National Leader discussed with movie executives allowing Kim Dotcom to take up residency in New Zealand so he could be extradited to the United States on copyright charges.

“If this is true, it means John Key has lied repeatedly to the public and would be grounds for him to resign.

“John Key must also order the release of the full Immigration New Zealand file on Kim Dotcom.

“For years John Key has been evasive about his meeting on 26 October, 2010 with Warner Bros executives at Premier House.

“Claims just days before that an Immigration official said there was ‘political pressure’ to process Kim Dotcom’s immigration application must now also be cleared up.

“If John Key is able to declassify documents about national security to protect his reputation over the claims by American journalist Glenn Greenwald, he is able to release these documents as well.

“The National Leader’s credibility is on the line. The public are being expected to take him at his word. But his credibility has been stretched about as far as it can go.

“John Key must now show New Zealanders he has been acting appropriately by releasing evidence to back his claims,” David Cunliffe says.
