Unadulterated Drivel

Winston Raymond Peters tells NZPA yesterday:

The solicitors account was controlled by the Law Society, he said.

“It is not a trust fund in that respect. It is purely used to pay legal costs.”

He said National were talking “unadulterated drivel”.

“This is an outgoing, an impost, a cost to fight a legal battle on an action to do with democracy,” Mr Peters said.

The legal fund was set up in 1991 when Mr Peters became involved in a series of legal actions.

BUT THE VERY SAME DAY, HIS LAWYER TELLS THE HERALD:

Mr Henry said no fund or account for Mr Peters’ legal bills existed.

“The position is that the money is used to pay an existing bill, full-stop.

There is no fund. There is no cash sitting in a balance anywhere. There are bills to be paid.”

So who are we to believe, Winston Raymond Peters or Brian Henry?

The two statements cannot exist together unless one of them “mis-spoke”.
