Helen Clark and Michael Cullen attacked the Chinese journalist who was evicted from covering a meeting with the Chinese Government, claiming he was disruptive.
The tapes showed this was a lie. The PM spin doctor has now clarified that maybe it was not the journalists fault, and that mistakes have been made by the Police.
Great to get this concession, but that’s not good enough frankly. She and Dr Cullen attacked and denigrated the journalist, and they should apologise to him. As should the Police also.
Stephen Franks sat on the select committee which looked into a similar incident in Christchurch in 1999. He blogs about how unsatisfactory the Police evidence to that Committee was, and this seems to be the case again.No tag for this post.
