WELLINGTON

Dear Mr Broad

WHAIKA TE WHAKAPONO:   Seek for the Truth – Follow the Truth

Following my November 2007 letter to Chief Justice Dame Sian Elias confessing perjury to obtain convictions against my targets while working for your Criminal Intelligence Section, your office instigated an “independent” inquiry, viz:  the office of Mr Bruce Squire QC

It is apparent from my recent correspondence with Mr Bruce Squire QC that he has been unable to obtain all of my targets’ names  [Edit … relevant correspondence is  here  and  here  and  here]

The names of my targets are contained in my personal file at the headquarters of your Criminal Intelligence Section — and I now write requesting you provide me a complete copy of that file

Please deliver the file to:

Mr Bruce Squire QC
Featherston Chambers
PO Box 10-157
Wellington

Should it be necessary, this request is made pursuant to the relevant provisions of the Privacy Act

Thank you

Yours sincerely

Patrick  O’Brien

Mr O’Brien

Thank you for your email.

In my email to you dated 12 May I advised that the information at issue had been provided to Mr Squire.  It appears, now,  that you would also like a copy of the file.

The information requested will be forwarded to Mr Squire by 30 June. However, some information will be withheld in reliance upon sections 9 (2)(a) and 6(c) of the Official Information Act and sections 27(1)(c) and 29(1)(a) of the Privacy Act.  This is to ensure that Mr Squire’s inquiry is not prejudiced, and to protect the privacy of certain named individuals, including people who were prosecuted as part of your undercover work.

If you are not satisfied with this response to your request, you may make a complaint to the Ombudsman or the Privacy Commissioner.

Mr O’Brien

Further to my previous email to you I am writing to advise that there will be a delay in the supply of the information you have requested.  This has occurred as a result as a result (sic) of the internal consultation that has been required.  We now anticipate that we will be able to forward the information to Mr Squire by 10 July 2009.
