Dear Graham,

I acknowledge your request dated 13 September 2016 under the Official Information Act 1982 (the Act).

I have transferred your request to the Department of Conservation (DOC) under section 14 of the Act because the information you have requested is more closely connected with the functions of that department.

You will receive a response from DOC in due course.

Kind regards,

Andrew Ketels | Ministerial Advisor
Office of Hon Maggie Barry ONZM
Minister for Arts, Culture and Heritage, Minister of Conservation, Minister for Seniors

Dear Andrew Ketels,


We have requested an Official Info Request from your department and we stand by our allegations of corruption and collusion and have the evidence to support the allegation.

We would like to point out that by law you were required to have responded promptly to our request for information, which you have failed to do.

It would appear that your department is deliberately postposing this request and not responding with the required information, and we believe that certain parts of the information will be particularly embarrassing and are likely to reveal the high levels of corruption and collusion with regards the business sector of the community.

Our information request has been dragged out for well over 40 days, which is an extraordinary long time given the relevant simple nature of the questions we have asked.

Choosing to ignore this request does not mean that it will go away
Your attention to this matter would be appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

Graham Carter
