Dear New Zealand Police,
I am aware of the New Zealand Police practice of using interpol notices for harassment purposes, e.g. intentionally putting false and misleading information for obstructing citizen's movements and causing useless interrogations on borders. (The practice commonly seen within small pseudo-democracy countries)
May I kindly ask for the documents/policies regulating the use of Interpol notices and alerts (e.g. Interpol manual?).
Additionally, I am looking for the list of persons/positions having an access to use them (Interpol notices/alerts) and procedures/policies in place preventing misuse of them in a harassment way if it is not a part of the above documents.
