What is the legal status of NZ Bill of Rights in regards to Covid - 19 Public Health Response Act 2020

Athina Andonatou made this Official Information request to Ministry of Justice

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Athina Andonatou to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Athina Andonatou

Dear Ministry of Justice,
As a New Zealand citizen I am very concerned with what I see as a gross disregard for human rights especially Part 2: Clauses 9 - 11 and 13-18. My question to you is what is the legal status of these clauses from the New Zealand Bill of Rights in relation to the Covid - 19 Public Health Response Act 2020.
1) Are my human rights superseded by the Covid - 19 Public Health Response Act 2020.
2) If yes to the above, what rights do I still have as a New Zealand citizen?

Yours faithfully,

Athina Andonatou
