In 1996 claimed Russian spy Tariq Rauf, visited New Zealand.
Allegededly recruited to the Russian cause in 1990, the purpose of Mr Rauf’s visit to New Zealand is unknown.
The taxpayer/French government funded Peace and Disarmament Education Trust granted $705 towards the cost of the trip under its Visiting Speakers Programme.
Expenses were covered for Mr Tariq Rauf’s visit to New Zealand. He was the Director of the International Organisations and Non-Proliferation Project at the Centre for Non-Proliferation Studies, Monterey Institute of International Studies.
PADET funds the “peace” movement, indicating that a peace group or groups may have sponsored Mr Rauf’s trip.
Does anyone have any more information on Mr Rauf’s visit to Godzone?

That’s right phil. Scammers aren’t they?
The same PADET which funded Valerie Morse’s Masters thesis?
Every foreign diplomatic entity in NZ is spying on NZ.
NZ is spying on the US and the US is spying on NZ. NZ is spying on Iran and Iran is spying on Uzbekistan. Hence the the NZ – Uzbeki connection.
Iran is buying NZ lamb and reselling it to Uzbeckistam but it os labeled as a local meat product.
I joke but spying is endemic to international relations.
