Inappropriately restricted information in regards the officers of an islamophobic organization

Ali Anwar made this Official Information request to Department of Internal Affairs

This request has been reported as needing administrator attention (perhaps because it is vexatious, or a request for personal information)

From: Ali Anwar

Dear Department of Internal Affairs,

Please direct this inquiry to Charity Services.

The details of the officers of the 'The NZ Jewish Community Security Group Charitable Trust' are inappropriately withheld. This organization is run on behalf of foreign agents of the Israeli Mossad, distributes islamophobic propaganda to Police and other New Zealand government organs, and internal intelligence we have developed indicates that officers include extreme anti-Muslim activists whose rank islamophobia has forced Muslims to leave conferences organized in memory of the Christchurch mosque shootings.

For this extremist organization to be allowed to conceal its foreign ties and extremist makeup is clearly in violation of the 'public interest' provisions of the Charities Act. As such, we request that the officers be disclosed, as well as the spurious claims they made to have their names restricted.

Yours faithfully,
Ali Anwar

Dear Stephen,

Our intelligence indicates that the notorious David Cumin is part of the CSG.

Before we have to take things further, to make things absolutely clear, you are seriously suggesting that the so-called 'charitable' work that it conducts- attacking Muslims and other supporters of Palestinian human rights- is so important that it must be protected by not revealing that it has members like Cumin who publicly slander Members of Parliament?
Cumin's lies have been repeatedly disproven by multiple human rights organizations. Even the 'israeli defence forces' terrorist group have admitted they "probably" killed Shireen.

Yours sincerely,
Ali Anwar
