Winston Peters under scrutiny for superannuation payments

From Morning Report, 7:56 am on 5 November 2019

The Acting Prime Minister Winston Peters was questioned at length yesterday about how he came to be overpaid his superannuation by $18,000 over seven years.

The overpayment sits at the centre of a privacy case - brought by Mr Peters - at the High Court in Auckland. The NZ First leader is suing two former National ministers, top civil servants and a government department, claiming they breached his privacy in 2017.

RNZ's deputy politcal editor Craig McCulloch was in court.
