ICT groups call for more consultation on spy Bills

Revelations about the US electronic surveillance progamme PRISM have led a group of New Zealand ICT organisations to send an open letter to Prime Minister John Key and Law and Order Committee Chair Jacqui Dean calling for an extension to submissions on the TICS and GCSB Bills currently out for consultation.

IITP Chief Executive Paul Matthews says "given the international developments in recent days, it has become even more essential that the issues covered by these Bills be considered carefully. Rushing these through via a significantly condensed consultation process simply doesn't bode well for good outcomes for New Zealand."
