“Terrorism” evidence handed to Solicitor-General; “It has today been referred to the Solicitor-General for consideration whether consent will be given to charges under the Terrorism Suppression Act”

(XTRA News) Evidence about the operation leading up to this month’s police raids is now in the hands of the Solicitor-General for a decision on whether charges can proceed under the Terrorism Suppression Act.

Seventeen people were arrested on October 15 following raids in Auckland, Wellington, Palmerston North, Hamilton, Christchurch, Whakatane and Ruatoki, 20km south of Whakatane.

The raids were the culmination of a year-long investigation into weapons training camps alleged to have been held in the Urewera country and netted a haul of weapons.

Police deputy commissioner Rob Pope said police had reviewed the evidence collected over the course of the investigation.

“It has today been referred to the Solicitor-General for consideration whether consent will be given to charges under the Terrorism Suppression Act.”

Police would now await the Solicitor-General’s decision, Mr Pope said.
