New Zealand PM slams 'mass surveillance' claims

  • New Zealand’s Prime Minister John Key has slammed allegations by the US journalist Glenn Greenwald that he was “deceiving the public” in the alleged spying row, reports say.

    Greenwald said he would produce documents, which have been provided by Edward Snowden, the NSA whistleblower, proving that Key’s government had approved mass surveillance of New Zealand citizens.

    Key said there was no “ambiguity” on this issue and he was prepared to declassify documents to bolster his case.
