The latest update on my Human Rights Tribunal case against NZ Police has come back and after the Privacy Commissioner found the Police had breached my privacy and civil rights, after the media picked up the story, after the media highlighted that they couldn’t even begin the case because they were underfunded and after the Associate Minister for Justice tweeted his support, the Human Rights Commission have come back to me to confirm they have no idea when they will be able to hold the Police to account because they still don’t have the money…
…it doesn’t matter of you are right wing or left wing, we can all agree that a Human Rights Review Tribunal that doesn’t have the money to investigate Police for abuses of power is a complete failure of process and accountability.
Remember, this is just for a bloody teleconference with the Police! This isn’t even the start of the investigation!
The Privacy Commissioner has done all the heavy lifting for the HRRT, yet they are so underfunded they still can’t can’t hold the Police to account.
This is insanity and it seems to be purposely underfunded so that the Police always win because people give up.
I’m not giving up, and I will hold the Police to account for their abuse of surveillance powers.
I will keep you updated as the case proceeds.
