including a clarified definition of a “terrorist act” – in response to the Christchurch terror attack.
It’s the Government’s first step in implementing recommendation 18 of the Royal Commission of Inquiry into the attacks on March 15, 2019, which called for a review of all legislation related to counter-terrorism in New Zealand.
Justice Minister Kris Faafoi promised the changes in December after the release of the recommendations. He acknowledged the need to “move our legislation to a wider range of terrorist activities and potential terrorist threats”.
The new powers allow for warrantless searches and hilariously a new definition of terrorism that replaces terror with ‘fear’.
You know, the way climate activists use ‘fear’ when they are protesting!
This bullshit expansion of Deep State powers is utterly unnecessary and will immediately become warped to include climate activists you clowns!
Look, I’m going to say the following using little words so Kris Faafoi can understand.
Remember when the SIS & GCSB claimed they couldn’t monitor every Website when they were challenged on why they didn’t spot the most recent incel promoting his hate manifesto on 4chan?
Well, it emerged shortly after that claim that the SIS had in fact monitored the down load by Tarrant of far right hate material online…
As the commission report found, a possible lead received by the SIS was an alert to a New Zealand-based IP address accessing files related to guerilla warfare tactics, Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri and Nowegian right-wing extremist Anders Behring Breivik.
But attempts to identify the user behind this IP address were unsuccessful. The review said the agency’s actions in regard to this lead were “reasonable and appropriate”.
…and if that download had been cross referenced with any intel on extremist elements in that download area ( like complaints from his local gun club) Tarrant would have been caught.
We are not asking for the Deep State to be given more power, we are asking they use the powers they currently have properly!!!
We spend $200m each year on these agencies to keep us safe from the ‘what ifs’
The SIS (Secret Intelligence Services)
The GCSB (Government Communications Security Bureau)
The NSG (National Security Group)
The CNSN (Cabinet National Security Committee)
The ODESC (Officials’ Committee for Domestic and External Security Coordination)
The SIB (Security and Intelligence Board)
The CTCC (Counter-Terrorism Coordinating Committee)
The NICC ( National Intelligence Coordination Committee)
The IAD (Intelligence and Assessments Directorate)
The NRU (National Risk Unit) and the NSPD (National Security Policy Directorate).
Why aren’t we safe?
