Amnesty International New Zealand call for investigation into police spying

No comments

Amnesty International have launched a petition calling for an investigation into the New Zealand police’s use of private investigators Thomson and Clark:

Rochelle Rees  is a mother of a seven-year-old, an IT professional that drinks soy lattes and she’s pretty sure the police have been spying on her.

Evidence is mounting that over the last decade police and private investigator firm Thompson and Clark have been involved in increasingly sinister activities directed at activists, including surveillance and spying.

If true, this would be a serious blow to freedom of expression and assembly in New Zealand.

Sign the petition here.
