AUCKLAND (Radio 95bFM The Wire/Southern Cross/Pacific Media Watch): Pacific Media Watch freedom project editor Kendall Hutt speaks with 95bFM’s news and editorial director Ximena Smith about the controversial deportation of New Zealand missionary Douglas Tennent.

In the Pacific Media Centre’s weekly Southern Cross radio programme, Hutt discusses the wider consequences of Tennent’s deportation from Papua New Guinea and its ties to the country’s 2017 general election.

The Pacific Media Watch programme also touches on the Sunday Star-Times’ revelations about the French spy – Christine Cabon, who infiltrated Greenpeace 32 years ago -- on Monday’s 1985 Rainbow Warrior bombing anniversary.
