$5000 award for citizen's arrest of Peters
Blogger offers $5000 for citizen's arrest of Peters
Popular and competent blogger Whaleoil has followed the lead of the Auckland University Students Association in offering a $5000 reward for the arrest of a well known criminal who has recently entered New Zealand: Winston Peters.
"Winston Peters needs to be held to account over his misleading and contradictory statements," says the hardworking and conscientious blogger.
Peters has recently been accused of mishandling party donations, hiding donations from wealth racing businessmen and lying about donations from Owen Glenn and now Sir Robert Jones.
"I'm a firm advocate of accountability in Government: now I'm putting my money where my mouth is by offering $5000 to anyone who can rope this dope and get him to answer some long overdue questions.
"And just before Peter Low gets on the phone, the competition is not open to triad gangs," adds Slater.
Citizen's arrests of high ranking government officials have been attempted recently:
-John Bolton, the former US ambassador to the United Nations, escaped an attempted citizen's arrest by author and activist George Monbiot at the British Hay Arts Festival in late May 2008.
-Peace activist Peter McGregor attempted a citizen's arrest of Australia's then Attorney-General Philip Ruddock as a war criminal at the University of New South Wales in July 2007
-Campaigner Peter Tatchell has twice attempted to make a citizen's arrest on Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe.
