Who is Rawshark?

Ryan Smith made this Official Information request to Prime Minister

Prime Minister did not have the information requested.

From: Ryan Smith

Dear Prime Minister,

Following on from the following New Zealand Herald Article (http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/articl...) posted on 30/10/2014. The article quotes the Prime Minister as believing he is aware of the identity of the hacker who goes by the pseudo name "Rawshark".

Nicky Hager's house was searched by a Police Team to obtain this piece of information. Instead of a Police Team having to filter through the Prime Minster's personal belongings I thought it more apt to request under the Official Information Act that the Prime Minister releases the identity of the hacker 'Rawshark".

Therefore I request that the Prime Minister reveals who he believes is the hacker known by the pseudo name "Rawshark" is.

Yours faithfully,

Ryan Smith
