Don Brash Says Length Of Zaoui’s Detention “Unsatisfactory”
By Selwyn Manning – Scoop Co-Editor
National Party Leader Don Brash this morning told 95bFM listeners that the length of time Ahmed Zaoui has spent detained in prison is “unsatisfactory”.
Brash said, as leader of the opposition, he has been privy to a SIS briefing on why it issued a security risk certificate against Zaoui, but added that he remains unhappy with the way the Zaoui case has been handled.
He said Mr Zaoui has been detained for “near on two years” and that for almost half of this time Mr Zaoui was detained in solitary confinement.
Mr Brash joins a long list of New Zealanders speaking out criticising the Government’s handling of the Ahmed Zaoui case. Other prominent New Zealanders include the Council of Trade Unions president Ross Wilson, Amnesty International’s New Zealand director Ced Simpson, Waikato University academic Dov Bing, Auckland University academic Paul Buchanan.
