Act's law and order spokesman, David Garrett, having only just been revealed as having an assault conviction, was forced today to admit to parliament that he was arrested for stealing a dead baby's identity to get a false passport.

He was discharged without conviction on the last charge and granted suppression - something his party has railed against for others.

But it's out there now, so what's going to happen?

Close Up spoke to Act leader Rodney Hide from Hong Kong.
