Police making progress in crypto-currency investigation

"Police making progress in crypto-currency investigation"

Police continue to investigate the unauthorised transfer of crypto-currency worth a significant sum from Christchurch-based crypto-currency trading company Cryptopia on 13-14 January 2019.

Good progress is being made and positive lines of enquiry are being developed to identify the source of the transfer, and to identify where the crypto-currencies have been sent.

The assistance of the crypto currency community is being sought as the investigation progresses.

This is a very complex investigation, involving expert digital forensic investigators from within New Zealand and in various overseas jurisdictions, as well as overseas authorities.

Members of the investigation team met with Cryptopia management and staff yesterday and today and outlined progress in the investigation.

Cryptopia management and staff have been co-operating with Police and providing considerable assistance in the investigation.

The investigation is expected to take some to time complete, and the digital forensic team will be on-site at Cryptopia’s premises for some days to come.

Anyone with information which could assist the investigation can contact police by email at crypto@police.govt.nz.

Environment: Government To End Tenure Review

“Tenure review has resulted in parcels of land being added to the conservation estate, but it has also resulted in more intensive farming and subdivision on the 353,000 ha of land which has been freeholded. This contributed to major landscape change and loss of habitat for native plants and animals,” said Eugenie Sage. More>>
