(Nov 02, 2007) In a public statement made on November 8, 2007, New Zealand's solicitor-general Dr. David Collins QC declined to authorize charging recently arrested environmental activists under the Terrorism Suppression Act, on the basis that there was insufficient evidence to meet the high standard required by the legislation that the group was planning on committing a terrorist act.
