Admission of war criminals to NZ

Mohammed Khan made this Official Information request to Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment

Currently waiting for a response from Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Mohammed Khan

Dear Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment,

Kindly direct this inquiry to 'Immigration NZ'.

In the wake of the collapse of the collaborationist regime in Afghanistan, many sickening revelations have been made about the crimes committed against civilians by various paramilitary units of the former regime, particularly the so-called "zero units" of the "National Directorate of Security", the kill-squads of the collaborationist regime's CIA-trained internal spy service ( https://www.propublica.org/article/afgha... ), but also the so-called "Afghan National Army Commando" units.

Given New Zealand's commitment to human rights, and the danger that seasoned killers of innocent civilians pose to the New Zealand public:
1) Have former militants of the "National Directorate of Security" been allowed to immigrate to New Zealand?
2) Have former militants of the "Afghan National Army Commando Corps" been allowed to immigrate to New Zealand?

Kind regards,
Mohammed Khan
