Dear New Zealand Police,

As a response has not yet been received, and this is the third one I have lodged recently which is now overdue.

Please keep in mind that under the Official Information Act 1982, s 12 you are required to accept a request in any form that it is submitted, as such any reasons given for delays are inadequate justifications at this stage. I have now forwarded this to the ombudsman for further investigation.

Yours faithfully,

Lance O'Riley
