Dear New Zealand Police,
Can you please confirm that New Zealand is a common law country
and if so;
Can you please confirm common law is a separate jurisdiction from New Zealand Acts and a man standing in common law jurisdiction while he may be arrested for breach of the peace cannot be charged for it or any other crime under any NZ Acts, as per s9 of the Policing Act 2008.
