All eyes on Wellington

The Supreme Court will deliver its decision on the Ahmed Zaoui case tomorrow at 10am. Depending on their decision, the Inspector-General may be effectively forced to withdraw the Security Risk Certificate against Zaoui (and there's no question of that result if the Court of Appeal's ruling is upheld), or he may uphold it and punt the final decision on whether to deport Zaoui to the Minister of Immigration - a Minister whose decision is difficult to appeal and who may just be influenced by the need to court the redneck vote (and the redneck coalition partner) in election year.

I'll blog it properly once I've read the judgement.
