In 1996 claimed Russian spy Tariq Rauf, visited New Zealand.
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?
