The Privacy Commissioner has blogged:
The third development is that I have convened a meeting, which I hope to become regular, of the agencies responsible for overseeing security and intelligence agencies. That includes my office, the IGIS, the Chief Ombudsman, and the Auditor-General. Together we will be able to ensure that our efforts are as informed and coordinated as our respective legislative schemes permit.
I look forward to continuing to play a role in providing assurance to New Zealanders that the activities of our security and intelligence agencies are lawful and proportional.
And Stuff has reported:
So those saying there is no mass surveillance include:
- The PM
- The former PM
- The Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security
- The Privacy Commissioner
- The GCSB Director
- The former GCSB Director
I believe them over Kim Dotcom, and his Moment of Truth circus. Don’t let Dotcom distract from the real issues of our economy, our hospitals, our schools, our welfare system and our justice system.
