No mass surveillance – IGIS

Who do we believe on the subject of mass surveillance?

We have the word of the Inspector-General for Security and Intelligence, Cheryl Gwyn:

Press Release: Inspector General of Intelligence and Security

The following is attributable to Cheryl Gwyn, Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security:

“As part of my role as Inspector-General, I review whether the GCSB complies with the restrictions upon interception of New Zealanders’ communications and with the requirement to intercept communications only for authorised purposes. That review is ongoing.

I am only able to comment on specific GCSB activities through my annual and inquiry reports. However, I can advise that I have not identified any indiscriminate interception of New Zealanders’ data in my work to date. I will continue to monitor these issues.”

Ms Gwyn will not be conducting interviews on this issue.

 

Countering her is a bunch of foreigners, trying to interfere in our election for their own political ends.

I trust her and I trust not just this government but successive governments to balance the freedom of New Zealanders with security for New Zealand and New Zealanders.

    “And in case anyone thinks she is some ideological friend of the current Government, I would point out she was a member of the Young Socialists and was involved with the Nicaragua Solidarity Committee, which included Nicky Hager and Keith Locke!”

    “Prime Minister John Key acknowledged today that NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden’s claim that New Zealanders’ data is accessible through the controversial XKeyscore system “may well be right”.”

    Why should we allow other countries to access data from ordinary New Zealanders without our control? Again we are losing our sovereignty from an over eagerness to please the ‘big boys’.

    I’m surprised Ele hasn’t deleted your comment, Dave, given that you didn’t include a LINK.

    I’ve done it for you.
