The Herald says:
Expatriate billionaire Owen Glenn says New Zealand First leader Winston Peters personally solicited a $100,000 donation he made to his lawyer Brian Henry.
Mr Glenn made the claim in a written statement to Parliament's privileges committee, released this morning.
Mr Peters has previously said he had no knowledge of any donations from Mr Glenn until Mr Henry informed him of the $100,000 donation in July.
In a written statement to Parliament's privileges committee, released this morning, Mr Glenn said Mr Peters had sought the donation from him.
"The payment was made by me to assist funding the legal costs incurred personally by Rt Hon Winston Peters MP concerning his election petition dispute, at his request.
" Mr Peters sought help from me for this purpose in a personal conversation, some time after I had first met him in Sydney.
"I agreed to help in the belief that this step would also assist the Labour Party in its relationship with Mr Peters. I supported the Labour Party."
