From: Matthew Theunissen

Hi,

I wish to request a transcript of the interview conducted with alleged Christchurch murderer Brenton Tarrant by a Police Firearms Officer, which I understand was conducted before he was granted a firearms licence.

I further wish to request any additional information held in relation to Tarrant's application for a licence and any other correspondence relating to the granting of the licence.

The public interest in making this information public seems to me abundantly clear.

Kind regards,
