Decision to appeal, or prosecute in the first place really:
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 - http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/10...
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?

Dear Ms Raue,
Please refer attached letter from Charlotte Brook, Crown Counsel, in
response to your Official Information Act Request dated 25 July 2014.
