Tçnâ koe Teresa,

Your question is not able to be answered by official information held by the Department of Internal Affairs and I am not aware of any other government agency that may hold official information that would answer your question.

Your Official Information Act request has not been accepted, as nothing in the Official Information Act obligates a responding agency to create information or form an opinion in order to answer a question. (refer the Ombudsman's guide 'The OIA for Ministers and Agencies - a guide to processing Official Information Act requests' page 6.)

You may wish to consider seeking independent legal advice to help you understand the legal definition of sovereignty and assist you with finding an answer to your question.

Ngâ mihi,
