Seymour Welcomes Operation Painter Findings


 

ACT Leader David Seymour has welcomed the findings of the Privacy Commissioner’s investigation into Operation Painter.

 

“The Police have channelled an Orwellian Police State by engaging in activity you’d expect from the KGB.”

 

“A ban on assisted dying has forced reasonable choice underground and invited corruption.”

 

“For 120 million people worldwide end of life choice is a legal choice. The raids, intimidation and scare tactics used on law-abiding New Zealanders by Police is a direct result of prohibition.”

 

“The Police Commissioner must take these findings extremely seriously and protect New Zealanders from undue, unlawful Police actions.”

 

“MPs that vote against my Bill are condoning punishing New Zealanders wanting choice by pushing them into black markets out of fear of law enforcement.”
