Former Labour Party leader Andrew Little and the Prime Minister's chief press secretary have appeared as witnesses in a trial about anonymous donations to the country's two biggest political parties. The Crown's case is that Labour, National, the Electoral Commission and the public were "kept in the dark" about donations allegedly split into smaller amounts to avoid disclosure rules. The trial, in the High Court in Auckland, is the result of a four-year investigation by the Serious Fraud Office. Amy Williams was there and filed this report.
