Invitation of Muslims into an apartment on Tinakori Road

Bill made this Official Information request to Minister Responsible for the GCSB

The request was refused by Minister Responsible for the GCSB.

From: Bill

Dear Chris, Minister Responsible for the GCSB,

Were you aware that, in 2013, one of your most senior GCSB agents - the former chief liaison officer with the NSA no less - invited Muslims to take over an apartment that was being paid for by the State full of documents labeled "highly confidential" and "top secret"; documents relating to national security, and much else? There was even a triangular plague thanking said officer for his service from none other than General Keith Alexander (a photograph exists).

I know you knew.

I know you were informed of this. Some of the people who were invited to take over that apartment full of compromising material - mostly Muslims - were shit scared. But you did nothing, responded not at all.

Do you think you were somehow impervious, Mr Finlayson?

"Avarus animus nullo satiatur lucro."

I respect your intelligence, Chris, but I was also in "set one", and took - or was forced to take - the Latin option... And today you come second, friend; because I believe in something: human dignity, which is beyond any intellectual endeavor - any endeavor: in fact, all of them.

Yours faithfully and Merry Christmas,
