The District Court, Student Loans and Passport Renewal

Jay Maxwell made this Official Information request to Ministry of Justice

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Ministry of Justice should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Jay Maxwell

Dear Ministry of Justice,

I would like to request to know the type and consequences of charges laid against student loan defaulters by IRD. Also whether these charges are sufficient to refuse passport renewal by DIA. And I would also like to know if this would be in breach of freedom of movement (Bill of Rights)given it has the possibility to leave NZ citizens as illegal immigrants or stateless people wherever they may be when refused renewal.

Yours faithfully,

Jay Maxwell.
