Dear Public Prosecution Unit - Crown Law,
Thank you for supplying the information.
I am not going to apologise for my rant -- because it needed to be said.
I have not been supplied with instructions about not commenting on court cases that are under-way or presently being decided by the courts.
I am also waiting justice on events that occurred in 2018.
It would be unreasonable to expect me to be silent on issues while the courts of New Zealand take years for things to work through (nation of Very Little Precedent).
