It's official. ECHELON has been used against a New Zealand resident. We should be rioting in the streets over this, regardless of your views on the man himself.

This is just getting better and better for the police and their current political masters, inst it?

Barack Obama addressed the UN on free speech last night. He could learn a lot from New Zealanders. He spoke well, and convincingly, as does the Member for Coatesville, ah, Hobsonville. But he wouldn't last one round against David Lange. There is free speech and free speech! If people are protesting to the result in deaths occurring, them "the character of your argument, Sir, I find regrettable". Did his ultimate support of the argument gain WikiLeaks.org founder a medal, such as that given to the Solicitor-General of Hong Kong for his assistance to the cause of freedom of information

"Winkelmann also staunchly considers it is every judge's right to routinely suppress the open public function of their actions and rulings.

"Police Minister Anne Tolley has stonewalled reporters asking about what's been described as inconsistent evidence given by a senior policeman to the High Court" [RNZ news]

"Mr Wormald has since filed papers saying he was mistaken in his evidence" It doesn't work like that. The "mistake" was made in the High Court. The "explanation" without the aid of the Crown Solicitor, has to be in open Court. The solicitor may not "aid and abet" criminal action (as he has conversely alleged Megaupload directors and staff have done). Not one, but two criminal offenders now. Lawyers are neither exempt from nor above, nor around the corner of, New Zealand Law

I think the words of Dotcom “The courts in New Zealand – they are dealing with lies, cover ups and fake stories on a daily basis and they will see straight through this,” are pretty much in line with what the public of NZ thinks. When the ineptitude of the NZ Police and friends is exposed it is not a pretty sight.
