Ardern Government support for the murder of Palestinian civilians and desecration of religious sites

Andrew Li made this Official Information request to Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Andrew Li to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Andrew Li

Dear DPMC,

On April 23, a statement was made by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade falsely suggesting that Palestinians bore some degree of responsibility for the repeated attacks made on the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Palestinian Jerusalem by zionist invaders.

On May 16, a further statement was made by Nanaia Mahuta, the responsible minister, denying that Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh was murdered by the zionist entity, which you refer to as 'israel', contrary to all human witness statements and independent international investigations. Furthermore, it endorsed the unprovoked terrorist attack on the funeral of Shireen by zionist 'police'.

I am seeking all communications between the office of the Prime Minister, with MFAT and Nanaia Mahuta, relating to the ongoing zionist attacks against the legitimate population of Palestine, and relating to how statements by the Ardern government in regards the zionist entity and its continuing attacks on the native Palestinian population should be handled.

Kind regards,
Andrew Li

Tēnā koe Andrew Li

Thank you for your request which was transferred from the Department of
the Prime Minister and Cabinet on 27 May 2022 in which you request the
following under the Official Information Act 1982 (OIA):

On April 23, a statement was made by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and
Trade falsely suggesting that Palestinians bore some degree of
responsibility for the repeated attacks made on the Al-Aqsa Mosque in
Palestinian Jerusalem by zionist invaders.

On May 16, a further statement was made by Nanaia Mahuta, the responsible
minister, denying that Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh was
murdered by the zionist entity, which you refer to as 'israel', contrary
to all human witness statements and independent international
investigations. Furthermore, it endorsed the unprovoked terrorist attack
on the funeral of Shireen by zionist 'police'.

I am seeking all communications between the office of the Prime Minister,
with MFAT and Nanaia Mahuta, relating to the ongoing zionist attacks
against the legitimate population of Palestine, and relating to how
statements by the Ardern government in regards the zionist entity and its
continuing attacks on the native Palestinian population should be handled.

My office has conducted searches of our records but has been unable to
identify any information in scope of your request.  Accordingly, your
request is refused under section 18(e) of the OIA, as the information

it, cannot be found.

this decision by contacting [1]www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or freephone
