A lot of hot air blowing in Parliament as usual about covert surveillance. As Counsel who represented one of the accused who was discharged in the Ureweras case I believe I am better qualified to comment than the ragtag bunch of carpetbaggers, acedemics ,bureaucrats and burnt out ex-politicians who are all blowin smoke you know where. What is required is a Royal Commission of Inquiry into how District Court Judges granted these search warrants in the first place and whether their power to make such decisions should be removed from them. End of story. At the same time the Inquiry should consider how High Court Judges granted interception warrants in relation to non-sensical legislation. These are the questions that need to be answered not whether what has happened should be validated after the event by shonky legislation driven by dodgy statistics from the cops.
