Security Of Privileged Information Paramount

Media Release

27 March 2001


New Zealand First Law and Order spokesperson Ron Mark has again stressed the need to ensure absolute security of personal sensitive and privileged information held on Police and Justice department computers.

Mr Mark was commenting on the revelations made by a “reformed” Mongrel Mob member, who is claimed to have changed sides and had wished to assist Police.

“In a statement to the Auckland High Court where his case for compensation from the Police is proceeding, the allegation that the Mongrel Mob had infiltrated the Justice Department and was able to access the Police computer, is of great concern,” said Mr Mark.

“Those who hold firearms licences for instance live in fear of being targeted by gangs seeking to obtain firearms. Equally other information such as keyholders of commercial premises may also be accessible by gangs if the integrity of Police data is breached,” Mr Mark claimed.

“Once more I urge the respective Ministers concerned to immediately investigate this very serious allegation and if shown to be true, to leave no stone unturned in their endeavours to take any corrective action deemed necessary,” said Mr Mark.
