Alex Dye made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

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

From: Alex Dye

Dear New Zealand Police,

I am a criminal defence lawyer practicing in Wellington and have a current case involving a potential conflict of interest on the part of investigating police.

The situation is that a police officer is investigating my client in relation to an assault allegation in which my client is the alleged offender. That same officer is investigating a complaint made by my client to the Independent Police Conduct Authority. The complaint relates to the father of the complainant in the assault allegation who is a police officer.

Please provide any policy documents around how IPCA investigations are to be carried out, particularly in terms of any conflict of interest, and any general conflict of interest policy documents.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,
Alexander Dye
