71. Hi...
This is what I know and guess...

Officially he was deported because he was named in the 911 commission report as Hanjour's flatmate. The NZ Govt claimed that they were surprised he was here and launched an inquiry into how he got through the borders.

Unofficially it seems more than likely that he was identified as he arrived, surveilled for a few months by the SIS and then deported. I would suggest that he was deported and not charged or something else because he didn't do anything.

It looks like the news of all this only went public because somehow it leaked to the NZ Herald newspaper after the deportation. The news emerged after he was already long gone so this was no staged publicity stunt.

God knows what he was doing here though - as you point out his story has more than a few holes in it.

And the irony of the fact that he was free to travel around the US but not NZ was not missed.
