Rt Hon Helen Clark
Prime Minister of New Zealand
Prime Minister Helen Clark today paid tribute to Paul Molineaux, a former Director of Security, who passed away on Thursday in Christchurch aged 85 years.
“Paul Molineaux was Director of Security from 1976 to 1983. He oversaw a period of expansion in the Service.
“Before becoming Director of Security, he worked as a lawyer, served as a Magistrate and District Court Judge, and for a period as Chief Justice in Western Samoa. Following his term as Director of Security, he served as Privacy Commissioner for ten years.
“Paul Molineaux enjoyed a fine career in the law and in public service. My condolences are extended to his family at this sad time,” Helen Clark said.
Mr Molineaux was awarded a CMG in the 1983 Queen’s Birthday honours list.
