New Testimony From Glenn

The NZ Herald is reporting that Owen Glenn is likely to be presenting new testimony to tomorrow's meeting of the Privileges Committee

New testimony from billionaire Owen Glenn is expected to be presented at tomorrow's privileges committee inquiry into his $100,000 donation towards Winston Peters' legal bill.
The committee asked for clarification and it is likely he has written a second letter with greater detail of how he came to make the donation.
It is bound to raise questions about who asked Mr Glenn for the money, which was used to pay for an electoral petition mounted by the New Zealand First leader.
Efforts may also be going on to get Mr Glenn to appear by videolink.
Mr Peters has indicated he wanted to appear at the committee tomorrow to challenge some of Mr Glenn's version of events but he has not yet confirmed his attendance. The committee has no idea who will be appearing before it.
