Dear Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade,

According to Canadian regime media, in February 2015, an employee of the Canadian Security 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 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 a part of the broader 'Five Eyes' group.

1) Was MFAT involved in the organization of this visit by members of CSIS, an acknowledged child sex trafficking organization, to New Zealand? If so, please disclose all documents related to this.
2) What is MFAT's policy on child sex trafficking?
3) What is MFAT's policy on ISIS, the organization that CSIS were supporting by supplying their members with child sex slaves?

Kind regards,
Mohammed Khan
