Allegations Of Political Interference In SFO Inquiry

Fran O'Sullivan makes a serious allegation in today's NZ Herald. She says that Peters and Clark have done a deal

Peters gets to offer up his portfolios to Clark (in the meantime) instead of being stood down or sacked. The SFO gets a prime ministerial nudge to hurry up the investigation instead of playing to the cameras and stretching out inquiries until after the election; a situation which could adversely affect NZ First's electoral chances irrespective of whether charges are ultimately laid.

This is very serious and if true, Labour should be very worried indeed.
