Move was 'unexpected' – Horan's lawyer
Tuesday 4 Dec 2012 3:39 p.m.
Brendan Horan has been expelled from the New Zealand First caucus. He is a list MP and no charges have been laid against him.
Reportedly, the issues surround money his mother won playing lotto.
Campbell Live has not seen the source material, but the Sunday Star Times has detailed accusations that Mr Horan's mother moved to recover money from him just prior to her death in August.
Party leader Winston Peters today said: "The information we have received leaves me in a position where I have no confidence in Mr Horan's ability to continue as a member of Parliament, and he will be expelled from the New Zealand First caucus forthwith."
The public does not know what that information is, and Mr Peters declined Campbell Live’s invitation to for an interview tonight.
John Campbell discussed the issue with Mr Horan's lawyer, Paul Mabey, QC.
