Records of the Ministerial Inquiry into the Peter Ellis case

Ross Francis made this Official Information request to Ministry of Justice

The request was partially successful.

From: Ross Francis

Dear Ministry of Justice,

In 2015, did Tina Wakefield and or other Justice Ministry staff raise any concerns with Archives New Zealand about the Justice Ministry’s record-keeping? If so, please supply me with all records pertaining to this question. I am requesting emails, file notes, faxes, letters, texts, memos and any other information - inluding information held in the minds of officials - relating to this question.

Graham Davies says that in respect of the Ministerial Inquiry into the Peter Ellis case, he was supplied with transcripts of the complainants’ videotaped interviews, and transcripts of the "examination and cross examination of the evidence given by interviewers, parents and children at depositions and trial". Please supply me with a copy of the same material and of any other material with which he was supplied. Please note I do not require copies of the videotaped interviews, only the transcripts.

Please contact me if you have any queries regarding this request.

Yours faithfully,

Ross Francis
