Advice on corporate manslaughter

Alex Harris made this Official Information request to Ministry of Justice

The request was partially successful.

From: Alex Harris

Dear Ministry of Justice,

On 6 November 2014 the Prime Minister, in comments to the families of Pike River victims, revealed that the government had sought advice on criminalising corporate manslaughter ("Solid Energy says Pike River Mine will not be re-entered", NZ Herald, 6 Nov 2014). I would like to request the following information under the OIA:

* all advice on the introduction of a criminal offence of corporate manslaughter produced in the past three years.

I would prefer to receive an electronic response. Queries about
this request will be automatically forwarded to me by the website.

With regards to s12 of the OIA, I am an NZ citizen and in NZ.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Harris

I've complained to the Ombudsman about the redactions on the grounds that a decision has clearly been made (so there is no need to protect the constitutional convention of confidential advice) and public interest.
