Clark: Glenn told me of donation in February
12:00PM Thursday August 28, 2008
Helen Clark said today that billionaire Owen Glenn told her in February that he donated $100,000 to New Zealand First.
The Prime Minister then put that information to the party's leader Winston Peters at the time and he gave her an assurance then that the party had not received money from Mr Glenn.
This new information this morning means Helen Clark has known for months of the conflicting sides of the story which were publicly revealed yesterday in letters to Parliament's privileges committee.
The conversation between the Prime Minister and Owen Glenn came before Mr Peters' now infamous "NO" press conference at which he said the party had not received a dollar from the ex-pat businessman.
