Tena koe Mr Mac

 

I refer to your request of 5 March 2022 asking for information held by the
Whangarei District Court on any court attendance, court case, charges or
conviction of Mr Clarke Timothy Gayford within the months of February and
March 2022.

 

I note that the District Court falls within the jurisdiction of the
Ministry of Justice rather than Council as a central government rather
than local government function.  I am wondering therefore whether you have
may referred your request to Council in error?

 

I am happy to transfer your request formally to the Ministry of Justice if
you would like me to.  However, I note that official information
legislation does not generally apply to information held by the courts. 
This includes sentencing notes, court records, transcriptions or
information about a case currently before the courts.  However, the
Ministry of Justice website indicates that access to this sort of
information is dealt with by separate legislation and court rules and so
you will need to contact the relevant court directly.

 

The contact details for the Whangârei District Court are as follows:

 

Whangarei District Court

103 – 109 Bank Street

Whangarei

Phone: 0800 268 787

Email: [1][email address]

 

I hope this information is of some assistance in terms of confirming where
your request is best directed.   If you believe we have not responded
appropriately to your request, you have the right by way of complaint,
under section 27(3) of the Local Government Official Information and
Meetings Act 1987, to apply to the Ombudsman to seek an investigation and
review of the decision.

 

Ngâ mihi

On 9 March 2022 my colleague responded to your request letting you know
