New details of a cyanide threat against
a New Zealand golf tournament starring
Tiger Woods have been revealed.
Labour MP Trevor Mallard was duty
minister when a cyanide-laced letter
was delivered to the United States
Embassy in Wellington.
The letter, delivered in December
2001, threatened terrorist action against
the New Zealand Golf Open, due to
take place the following month with
Mallard, who recalled the subsequent
security operation after this week’s
reaction to the 1080 milk formula
threat, said it was believed to be a hoax
but still taken seriously.
Police tightened security at the
golf open at Paraparaumu, north of
Wellington, and warned the public
to be vigilant against food and drink
tampering, but were not more specific.
Mallard said that the cyanide sent
to the US Embassy was contained in
sealed sugar sachets.
“It resulted in a pretty major
alert. Much heavier both plain and
uniformed police presence, and
significant army presence at the golf but
also on routes to the golf. It’s different
to the current one (1080 contamination
threat), because the threat was more
limited. It was limited to an
event, and there was very close
monitoring of the particular product
(sugar) at the event.”
Police later confirmed that enough
cyanide was sent to the embassy to
kill several people. Woods’ management
team were informed of the letter.
The cyanide letter’s author was not
identified or caught. Its sending was
later believed to be linked to more
cyanide threat letters.
A group calling itself September
11 and claiming to possess 25kg of
cyanide sent letters to the US Embassy
and the British and Australian high
commissions threatening an attack on
the 2003 America’s Cup in Auckland.
The threats led police and health
chiefs to make a rare public warning
for all New Zealanders to be vigilant
when taking public transport, eating
in restaurants or in public, and eating
