Mike Williams statement re Owen Glenn
Mike Williams statement
Labour Party President Mike Williams said that the discussions Mr Glenn refers to in his evidence did not involve any discussion of a specific donation to Mr Peters.
“My recollection is that my discussions with Mr Glenn concerned the likely outcome of Mr Peters’ electoral petition. Mr Glenn asked me whether I thought Mr Peters had any chance of winning the Tauranga petition and I said that I thought he did.
“I have no recollection of being asked or offering any comment on whether or not Mr Glenn should provide financial assistance to Mr Peters and I certainly did not discuss that possibility with anyone else.”
Mike Williams said that Owen has been a strong and loyal supporter of both Labour and New Zealand.
