Kia ora Mr Gregory,

Thank you for emailing the Ministry of Justice.

The information you are requesting is a court record and not held by the Ministry of Justice. This is because, while the Ministry provides administrative support to courts, the judiciary are responsible for court records.

Information held by the courts, sentencing notes, court records, transcriptions or information about a case currently before the court and are not subject to the Official Information Act 1982.

On this basis your request is refused under section 18(g)(i) as the information requested is not held by the Ministry of Justice.

However, access to these records is dealt with by separate legislation and Court Rules and you will need to contact the relevant court directly, the details for the courts can be found here https://www.courtsofnz.govt.nz/utilities...

You do not have to request information in person from the courts. You can do so by contacting them and filling out an application. This can be done via email or by post.

Here is a link to the form you will need to complete https://www.justice.govt.nz/assets/Docum...

Ngā mihi,

You probably need to fill out that form and also send the same request to the Police.
