Winston Peters has met with the Pike River families and reaffirmed his promise for a manned re-entry and recovery of the bodies.
- Winston Peters 'stands by commitment' to re-enter Pike River mine
Anna Osborne lost her husband in the disaster and spoke on the AM show about her conversation with the NZ First leader. Ms Osborne was pleased with the results and thinks Mr Peters will keep his promise.
I absolutely believe Winston will deliver for us
Ms Osborne says she is certain that there are retrievable bodies in the mine, citing photographic evidence which she has shown to "interested ministers".
She stated that out of respect for the families, the images are not being released to the media.
Mr Peters has repeatedly said that re-entry into the mine will be a bottomline issue, regardless of which party he joins in government.
