Late Night Phone-calls Not From My Office — Peters

The New Zealand First Leader and MP for Tauranga, Rt Hon Winston Peters, has today lodged a formal complaint with the police regarding late night phone calls to elderly Tauranga residents, claiming to be from Mr Peters’ office.

“It is unfortunate that some of my opponents are now so desperate that they would resort to these dirty tactics. These calls are certainly not from any of my staff, nor are they from anyone working in my campaign.

“I would urge anyone receiving these calls to hang-up and call the police immediately.

“This is again turning into a dirty campaign and it shows that the other candidates must be getting very desperate for them to actually break the law. I have today written to the Tauranga Area Police Manager formally complaining over this issue and I am determined to get to the bottom of it,” concluded Mr Peters.
