information regarding any court attendance, court case, charges or conviction of Mr Clarke Timothy Gayford within the years 2019 - present dayt

Phillippa Scott made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

The request was refused by New Zealand Police.

From: Phillippa Scott

Dear New Zealand Police,

Do the New Zealand police have any record of, or any information regarding any court attendance, court case, charges or conviction of Mr Clarke Timothy Gayford within the years of 2019 to 2022 inclusive. The following statement is from the Police in 2018 and was printed in The NZ Herald but Newshub have a false story saying Police gave that statement a few weeks ago

"on this occasion we can say that Mr Gayford is not and has not been the subject of any police inquiry, nor has he been charged in relation to any matter".

please dont refer me to newshub fake news story

Yours faithfully,

Phillippa Scott
