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

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
