Gulf livestock decision

Hollie made this Official Information request to Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Hollie to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Hollie

Dear Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade,

Why did MFAT decide not to try and search or continue to support the search for the New Zealanders on board of Gulf Livestock 1.

Please explain the process that was followed in making this decision.

Please provide correspondence and reasoning around the making of this decision.

I expect this will be between NZ and Japanese officials.

Yours faithfully,
Hollie
