Peters says donations handled legally
New Zealand First leader Winston Peters says the party has followed the law implicitly in the way it treats donations.
The Electoral Commission says donations paid into a trust called the New Zealand First Foundation should have been reported as party donations, and it has asked the police to say whether any offences had been committed.
Mr Peters says the trust is based on one run by National.
He says the Electoral Commission’s statement underscores the importance of reviewing the donations regime.
