LEAD STORY------------


Gordon Campbell: Zaoui - The Final Chapter?
- Former Listener journalist Gordon Campbell who has written extensively on the Zaoui case wraps things up for Scoop readers. 'In any other circumstances, the face saving rationale that has been concocted to enable the SIS to rationalise its backdown on the Ahmed Zaoui case would be infuriating, but hey, winners can afford to be generous. However the claim in the NZ Herald that Ahmed Zaoui has provided the CIA with information on his former colleagues is a sign of what lengths the SIS is still prepared to go to in order to besmirch Zaoui's name.'
