No Terrorism Charges

November 8, 2007

I am relieved. There will be no charges under the Terrorism Act for those arrested last month (see my previous worried post here).

From Aotearoa Indymedia:

The Solicitor-General, David Collins, announced at 4pm Thursday that he would not be granting permission to the Police to lay charges under the Terrorism Supression Act for any of the 12 people they had applied for.

He said that while he felt that the Police had acted properly, after reviewing hundreds of pages of transcripts and video evidence, he felt there was not the required evidence to proceed with charges under the TSA. All 16 arrestees still face arms charges.

It is, I believe, the only sensible conclusion to the saga.
