Clark and Privacy Commissioner also say there is no mass surveillance

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 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.

To date, I have seen no evidence of mass surveillance being undertaken by GCSB that would contradict this assurance given by the Director at our Privacy Forum [PDF, 83 KB]earlier year.

I look forward to continuing to play a role in providing assurance to New Zealanders that the activities of our security and agencies are lawful and proportional.

And Stuff has reported:

leader David Cunliffe has been given assurances by former minister and party leader that New Zealanders weren’t been spied on under her leadership.

 

So those saying there is no mass surveillance include:

  • The PM
  • The former PM
  • The Inspector-General of 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 system and our justice system.
