Request for all comms between Minster of Police and Police commisioner

Do Kyun Kim made this Official Information request to Mark Mitchell

The request was successful.

From: Do Kyun Kim

Dear Mark Mitchell,

Can I please obtain all comms between Minister of Police and Police commissioner between 1 Nov 2023 to 8 February 2024.

This should be the same content which NZ Herald received and based their article on page A3, dated 9 February 2024.

Happy for it to be redacted of any sensitive information however, the content should not be any less than what NZ Herald received.

Yours faithfully,

Do Kim
