Urewera police raid

We are told the Supreme Court's ruling on the use of covert video surveillance has caused a major headache for the Police. Let me fix that for you.

My last post set out the Supreme Court's decision on the use of secretly filmed evidence against those accused of participating in the Urewera "training camps"/"terror group"/"consciousness raising sessions" (or whatever you wish to term them).

Taxpayers pay to dig dirt on Key; more charges for Urewera accused; business confidence takes a tumble; workers get support from Labour and National; Port Otago to become South Island's biggest; Wellington trick-or-treaters face Vomit Man

Taxpayer money was used to try to dig up dirt on National leader John Key, reports Colin Espiner, political editor of The Press.
