This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Gregory Soar to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Gregory Soar

Dear State Services Commission,

A civil court hearing has made the law clear around the use of false names on documents being issued by MSD WINZ in that such use of false names is not legal. The Social Security Appeal Authority also made the same ruling. MSD accepts this ruling. It is, according to the court an inviolate right. It does not apply to only civil cases because the Crimes Act 1961 ss 66, 255, 256 and 257 already tell us our answer that using false information on legal documents intended to be acted upon. Frankly the Crimes Act does not say that signing false names only applies to criminal action, rather it makes all and every such action criminal. This concept is easily understood. To be clear the Crimes Act makes no exception for civil cases to use false names on documents. ANY breach of the Crimes Act sections mentioned above constitute an offence and I allege MSD and Boyle has committed a criminql action.

MSD has admitted in writing using false names on documents that were issued and intended to be acted upon by the recipients.

1. As it is the legislated requirement of the State Services Commissioner to ensure MSD is operating legally and in a manner that upholds faith and confidence in our state Services especially the MSD does the State Services Commissioner intend to bring criminal charges against Boyle ( his ended employment is irrelevant) and the MSD?

2. If the State Services Commissioner does not intend to bring criminal charges against Boyle and the MSD please supply all information as to your decision to not do so.

3. If the State Services Commissioner does not intend to bring criminal charges against Boyle and MSD please supply the information on how that meets the legislated duties of the State Services Commission.

Yours faithfully,

Gregory Soar

Good afternoon Mr Soar

Official Information Requests

Our Ref:  SSCOIA 2019-0006 and SSCOIA 2019-0007

 

We refer to your official information requests dated 12 January 2019  and
15 January 2019 where you have asked several questions that relate to the
Ministry of Social Development’s previous Chief Executive, Mr Brendon
Boyle and a recent High Court decision on the use of pseudonyms.

The Official Information Act 1982 requires that we advise you of our
decision on your request no later than 20 working days after the day that
we received your request.  Unfortunately, it will not be possible to meet
that time limit and we are, therefore, writing to notify you of an
extension of the time to make our decision, to 27 February 2019.

We will keep you updated on the progress of our response to your request.

This extension is necessary because consultations needed to make a
decision on your request are such that a proper response cannot reasonably
be made within the original time limit.

If you wish to discuss any aspect of your request with us, including this
decision, please feel free to contact Ministerial Services at
[1][email address].

You have the right to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of
this decision. Information about how to make a complaint is available at
[2]www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or freephone 0800 802 602.

 

Kind regards
