Susan Couch knows nothing about the Susan Couch Trust
I have had word from someone who knows Susan Couch, with reference to the Susan Couch -Crime Victims Charitable Trust, which New Zealand First donated some of our money into.
I've been told that Susan Couch knows absolutely nothing about the Trust that bears her name. Apparently she doesn't even know why it bears her name. She has no details of it all, she has no idea what bank account it is, who arranged the bank account that the NZ First money went to, or apparently, whether she'll get any money from the Trust.
She thinks her name is potentially tarnished. If her name is tarnished, someone will be very angry.
Sounds like the trust was initiated without her knowledge. Yet Winston Peters know more about where the money is than Couch does - even though its not his trust. Imagine the outcry if Peters was to give our money to the For the Sake of our Children Trust and he could unequivically tell you two months later without contacting the trust that the money is still in the trust's bank account gathering interest.
What is good is that "a lot of good kiwis have backed Sue and helped her finance the court costs she is taking against the Government, so at least she's not going to be out of pocket" for suing the Government.
As an aside, a few people are going to Winston Peters site and making comments - but only the ones who think he done a marvelous job in helping Susan Couch get loads of money are getting their comments approved. None of mine have been approved.
