Corrupt Chinese Officials with Blood on Their Hands in New Zealand

This is just biz as usual for dirty Chinese commies:
Corrupt Chinese officials who have fled to New Zealand could be making large political donations to avoid being repatriated, Labour says.
Beijing authorities want to extradite what Prime Minister John Key has described as a “reasonable number” of Chinese from New Zealand to face charges of financial corruption.
Key revealed that President Xi Jinping raised the issue when he visited New Zealand last month.
Labour leader Andrew Little said today that when he was party president he had been approached by Chinese donors he described as suspicious.
Little did not accept their money, but said it was possible the money had found its way into the coffers of other political parties.
“They’re known to make political contributions to parties, I know because they tell us that,” he said on Morning Report.
“I know the fact that donations have been made because, certainly in the Labour Party when I was president, we were approached being offered handsome donations.
“We turned them down, but they would have gone to other places. We weren’t sure what the origin of their wealth was, and we weren’t satisfied, we weren’t comfortable so we didn’t accept the donation.”
National Party president Peter Goodfellow said the party disclosed all its donations in accordance with the electoral requirements.
There were no “explicit” background checks but Goodfellow confirmed a “small number” of donations had been rejected by National for various reasons – though none were related to the Chinese corruption scandal.
