Combatting Online Misinformation
From: Sam Mellor
Dear Ministry of Justice,
I request all briefing documents or other materials provided to the Minister on the subject of combatting online misinformation in relation to:
- the referendums taking place in 2020; and
- the general election taking place in 2020.
For context, I note this story on the RNZ website which refers to a team within MoJ set up to combat misinformation related to the referendums https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/political/402...
Please contact me if there is a need to clarify my request.
From: correspondence, official
