Prime Minister Helen Clark says the police operation against alleged terrorists operating out of the Urewera training camps will be judged “on the strength of the evidence”, as fresh claims emerge.
Among those claims yesterday was a report in the Sunday Star-Times that Miss Clark, Opposition leader John Key and US President George W Bush were among those targeted in threats recorded by police investigating the camps.
Miss Clark refused to comment on the claim yesterday and Mr Key could not be contacted. Miss Clark, meanwhile, cautioned against politicians wading into the debate.
According to yesterday’s report, the three leaders were discussed as potential targets by those under surveillance during the Special Investigations Group operation.
