"Only guilty of helping"

Five beaks on the Supreme Court bench have unaminously dismissed the fraudulent corrupt ex-Liarbour MP's appeal. And still he protests his innocence.

"While we are satisfied that the acceptance of gifts which are de minimis should not be considered corrupt ... the acceptance of other benefits in connection with official actions is rightly regarded as corrupt irrespective of whether there was an antecedent promise or bargain,'' they said.

"In the present circumstances, given the substantial nature of the benefits, no such defence was tenable.''

"Only guilty of helping". Helping himself, it would appear.
