Highly secret documentation which the NZ Defence Force says can’t be released publicly in an inquiry into a NZSAS raid is available on a Nato website, says journalist Nicky Hager.
Hager, who co-write the book which led to the inquiry, said evidence of the sort needed to ensure public confidence had been disclosed in comparative inquiries abroad or could be found on the internet.
“It’s a very important principle to remember when people say a document is secret. It is out there somewhere in the world.
“We are hiding it only from ourselves.”
