Student Loans Charges and Freedom of Movement

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). The requester can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Jay Maxwell

Dear Ministry of Justice,

I would like to request the following information under the OIA:

I would like to request to know the type and consequences of charges laid against student loan defaulters by IRD due to the Student Loan Scheme Amendment Bill (No 3).

I would also like to know if this is in breach of the 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.

I would prefer to receive an electronic response. Queries about this request will be automatically forwarded to me by the website.

Yours faithfully,

Jay Maxwell.
