The review of Czech drug-smuggler Karel Sroubek's residency case will be delayed further after Immigration New Zealand granted Mr Sroubek an extension.

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.
