Government interference with investigations

Ben made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

The request was successful.

From: Ben

Dear New Zealand Police,
The increase of blatant lies and cover ups coming from Jacinda Arderns government is causing a growing concern amongst the New Zealand public.

I would like to know if there has ever been any circumstances where a member of parliament, including prime minister Jacinda Ardern has ever asked the police to drop charges or drop an investigation against friends or family members including spouse or de facto.

Yours faithfully,
