Immigration Minister Iain Lees-Galloway has been under intense political pressure over his decision not to deport Sroubek, and ordered a review after conflicting information arose.

The original deadline for Mr Sroubek's response to the investigation was next Wednesday, 21 November, marking a three-week deadline.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Mr Lees-Galloway both previously indicated that was already too long for their liking.

The new extension granted to Mr Sroubek's legal team pushes the deadline out to at least a month.
