Dear Joanne,

Thanks for your email. I have joined the FYI website since 2017 and have made total of 175 request so far. There has not been an issue so far and my ID has been confirmed in the past. I am not sure why the sudden hassle after my 4th OIA request, is that because I have made too many requests? All my requests are valid and reasonable to hold the GOVT accountable.

For the purposes of the Act, I declare that I am a New Zealand citizen and residing in New Zealand.

Yours sincerely,

john luke
