Members of child sex trafficking organization meeting in Queenstown

Mohammed Khan made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

Currently waiting for a response from New Zealand Police, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Mohammed Khan

Dear New Zealand Police,

According to Canadian state media, in February 2015, an employee of the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service (CSIS) trafficked three British girls- 15, 15, and 16 years old respectively- into Syria for the purposes of sex, where they were repeatedly raped by older men. CSIS attempted to cover this crime up, and according to Canadian state reporting, nobody in the hierarchy which organized the trafficking has been subject to discipline.

Recent media reports indicate that employees of this CSIS organization who likely were involved in the chain of command overseeing the sex trafficking operation are meeting in Queenstown, as part of a the broader 'Five Eyes' group.

1) Are New Zealand Police aware that representatives of CSIS are meeting in Queenstown? Please provide all documents relating to this meeting.
2) Are New Zealand Police aware that CSIS has been involved in trafficking people by coercion or deception?
3) Are New Zealand Police investigating CSIS representatives in the country for their involvement in this crime?
4) Do New Zealand Police have any plans in place to protect underage New Zealand girls from the kind of actions CSIS has been involved in in the past?
