The attacks by National on Immigration Minister, Iain Less-Galloway are ridiculous! The Minister based his decision on Karel Sroubek using the best information from the Ministry. Allegations and accusations aside, a 3 week inquiry will get to the bottom of the decision and then we will have clarity.

The attacks by National on Immigration Minister, Iain Less-Galloway are ridiculous! The Minister based his decision on Karel Sroubek using the best information from the Ministry.

As a drug dealer, Sroubek might not get much sympathy from many New Zealander’s and we all understand that, but this is a democracy that protects human rights and we have clemency and due process, to knee jerk a reaction because Breakfast TV hosts and the National Party are whipping up unnecessary spite and singing the ‘tough-on-crime’ song isn’t good Government.

Compare the Minister’s response to not having the best information from his Ministry to that of the National Party and the meth hysteria inside state houses. National threw hundreds of beneficiaries onto the streets, spent $120million on decontamination costs that weren’t justified and made a housing crisis even worse! They were repeatedly told Housing NZ were using the wrong standards to kick state tenants onto the streets and they simply speed the evictions up!

Iain Lees-Galloway has done the right thing on this case that impacts this one person and his family. When are the National Party going to do the right thing over the 900 beneficiaries they hurt and the vast needless costs they spent?

    Martyn “NZ Immigration has advised my son that they are not controlled by any “Human rights legislation”.

    My Son as a born NZ citizen was refused hisn human right to put in an application with the NZ Immigration department a few weeks ago.

    My Son advised me that two days ago asked for a review to have his application to allow his Germen Fiancee come from Germany for a short work visa while they await a permanent resident and get married but was told Immigration ‘does not recognise or is controlled by any ‘human rights provisions’

    My son then approached a legal consultant, ; – quote “An Immigration lawyer stated the NZ Human Rights do not apply to NZ Immigration”.

    So Martyn they confirmed they cannot intervene or consider even my son’s case to have his fiancee come in with a ‘temporary work visa’.

    Labour has a screwed up case with the drug dealer, Sroubek case but to refuse entry for a short term work visa for a member of a german born woman is also very suspect when he is still here after years?

    You cannot quote drug dealer, Sroubek should be given “human rights” when my son’s fiancee a legally bonafide citizen of Germany is not given “Human rights” to come here to get married and get a short term work viza!!!!! – where is the logic in that?

    This is a good opportunity for the Coalition Government to hold an Inquiry into the activities of the NZ Immigration Service.

    I am guessing this is just the tip of the Iceberg, “Immigration For Sale?”

    Does anyone remember Peter Thiel the USA Entrepreneur given citizenship under dubious criteria a few years ago ?
