The Herald reports:
Images and video taken at the emergency conference of the Organisation of Islamic Co-operation (OIC), show Peters, who is 74, with his head slumped and eyes closed for extended periods of time. …He did not, however, deny being asleep.
It is not the first time Peters has appeared to nod off at meetings.
Last week, Peters sat with his eyes closed and his head down at times while Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and a contingent of Ministers and MPs met Muslim community leaders following the mosque terror attacks in Christchurch.
A few weeks before that, Peters’ eyes were closed during a Security and Intelligence select committee hearing, also attended by Ardern.
So that’s basically three times in three weeks that Peters has fallen asleep while performing public duties.
