Minister Iain Lees-Galloway: Statement on Karel Sroubek
Hon Iain Lees-Galloway
Minister of Immigration
29 October 2018
“I have determined that the public interest in the case of Karel Sroubek’s residency is deserving of further information.
“Today I am releasing the letter that I sent to Mr Sroubek, that communicates the strict conditions he must meet in both the short term and longer term, and that in no way do I condone any of the behaviour that he is associated with.
“Any breach of these conditions is likely to lead to his deportation. As I have conveyed to him, I’ve given him one final chance to remain in New Zealand and live within our laws.
“For privacy and legal reasons, as is standard practice for all administrations, I can’t disclose the details of this case.
“I can assure the public that this was a decision taken in full view of the information presented to me, and not a decision that I have made lightly.
“I will be making no further comment on this issue.”
