Decision to appeal, or prosecute in the first place really:

Katherine Raue made this Official Information request to Crown Law Office

The request was partially successful.

From: Katherine Raue

Dear Crown Law Office,

I request all information regarding the decision to prosecute in the case the matter referred to in the report at this link -

It seems unbelievable that this case could have been deemed to have met the Solicitor General's guidelines for prosecution and there is a lot of public interest in the matter - I note the article ends with the words "The Crown Law Office didn't return phone calls."

Also, how much did this prosecution cost the taxpayer?

Yours faithfully,

Katherine Raue
