Organised Crime and Anti-corruption Bill introduced
Organised Crime and Anti-corruption Bill
The Organised Crime and Anti-corruption
Legislation Bill will bring New Zealand into line with
international conventions and responds to recommendations
from the OECD and the US around tightening our defences
against organised crime.
The Bill seeks to improve New
Zealand's ability to collaborate with international law
enforcement agencies to disrupt organised crime and to
respond quickly and effectively to new criminal activities
as they emerge.

Greens: Russel Norman To Stand Down As Co-Leader
Green Party Co-leader Dr Russel Norman has announced today that he will stand down as leader at the party’s Annual General Meeting in May. Dr Norman will remain as Co-leader and retain his finance and climate change portfolios until the AGM.
“After nearly a decade as Co-leader, now is a good time to find a new challenge for myself, and to spend more time with my family” said Dr Norman.
“This is my ninth year as Co-leader and I think it’s time for a change. Now is a good time for new leadership for the Party. My replacement will start from a strengthened base and will have a full parliamentary term to establish himself in the role and take the Greens into government in 2017." More>>
