With the Prime Minister now talking openly about strippingÂ Yong Ming Yan/Bill Liu/Yang Liu of his citizenship:
The Prime Minister says New Zealand citizenship could be stripped from a mysterious Chinese millionaire who obtained a New Zealand passport despite multiple identities.
But it would require the use of special discretionary powers.
Everyone knows that “Yong Ming Yan” or “Bill Liu” isn’t who he says he is.
It’s now an open secret he uses a variety of different names, identities and aliases, including to obtain a New Zealand passport, and he was helped by his friends in the Labour Party.
Despite this, he still remains a New Zealand citizen. So the question is: does this damage the integrity of the Kiwi passport?
â€śThat’s probably the reason why this matter is now before the Auditor General and clearly Shane Jones has got some big questions to answer,â€ť says Prime Minister John Key.
It isn’t just Shane Jones that needs to answer some questions as well. But before he answers those questions he needs to sit down Shane Jones and get to Dover Samuels and Rick Barker and ask them the following questions…and not just take their fob off answers…he needs to really dig down intot he questions in case they come back to bite him on the arse.
So what are those questions he needs to ask?
- Did Dover Samuels, Rick Barker and Shane Jones ever receive any donation to or for their campaign/election accounts? If so were they declared?
- Have theyÂ receivedÂ any payments either directly or indirectly via close relatives into an account controlled by themselves or controlled by a close relative?
- If such payments wereÂ receivedÂ were they declared to IRD, the Electoral Commission and/or other statutory authorities?
