An 80-year-old retired humanitarian worker and a presbyterian minister have had their homes raided by police over a donation used to purchase PPE.

Laptops, mobile phones and paperwork were seized after police turned up without warning with a warrant to search their homes.

Both men are members of the NZDPRK Society who say the police are investigating a US$2000 donation they made to the North Korean Red Cross Society in March.

The society's Secretary, Peter Wilson, had his home raided on Monday morning.

He speaks to Susie Ferguson.
