Safety of New Zealanders

Mohammed Khan made this Official Information request to Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade

Currently waiting for a response from Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Mohammed Khan

Dear Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade,

After the callous slaughter of schoolboy Harry Dunn by sociopathic American spy Anne Sacoolas, it was revealed that American spies based in Britain were being given diplomatic status to protect them from the consequences of their crimes against British people, allowing the likes of Sacoolas to commit murder and simply run away, without facing responsibility for their crimes.

1) Are any American spies openly operating in New Zealand, at bases like the Waihopai and Tangimoana spy bases granted diplomatic status as Sacoolas was?
2) Have such spies been granted diplomatic status in the past?

Yours faithfully,
Mohammed Khan
