Subject: Fwd_Police Inquiry

Dear Mr O’Brien,

I understand that you have been advised by the New Zealand Police that I have been appointed to inquire into the allegations made in your letters of 30 November 2007 and 22 January 2008 to the Chief Justice and the Registrar
of the High Court at Hamilton respectively.

My Terms of Reference require me to identify and clarify the allegations made by you that whilst a Police Officer you told lies and tampered with evidence to obtain convictions, to assess the implications and veracity of those allegations, and to determine whether in any case there is a reasonable basis to suspect criminal offending which would justify a formal Police Investigation being initiated.  At the conclusion of my Inquiry I am required to provide the Commissioner of Police with a report.

I would like to begin the Inquiry as soon as possible within the framework of my other commitments.  In that connection I have a trial commencing on 7 April 2008 which I expect to last not less than six weeks, so that it is
unlikely I will be able to make any significant progress in this inquiry until after that.  However, it would be of assistance to me in defining the parameters of my Inquiry if you could provide me with the following information:

(i)    The nature of the lies which you have indicated in the correspondence previously referred to, you gave in evidence in the particular cases you have identified.

(ii)    If possible, the cases, perhaps by reference to the names of the defendants, in which the lies were told.  In that connection I note that you refer to a ‘circuit court session’ presided over by Justice Beattie in the Hamilton High Court in 1974.  Is it the position that the lies you say were told to the Court were confined to cases heard during that time.

If you would be good enough to provide me with the information I have requested above, that will enable me to begin inquiries into the particular cases with which I will be concerned, so that once the trial I have is completed, some progress will have been made in expediting this inquiry.

I look forward to receiving your reply.

Yours faithfully

Bruce Squire QC.

Subject: Police Inquiry

Dear Mr O’Brien

I note that I have had no response from you to the email I sent on 18 March last in connection with the Inquiry I have been commissioned to make into the allegations contained in your letters of 30 September 2007 and 22 January 2008 to the Chief Justice and the Registrar of the High Court at Hamilton respectively.

I should be obliged if you could let me have the information requested in that email so that the inquiry can be commenced and some progress made whilst I am engaged in the trial I referred to in that email which is scheduled to commence next Monday 7 April 2008 and to last at least for six weeks thereafter.

I look forward to receiving your reply.

Yours faithfully
