Hager v Attorney-General

New Zealand Supreme court decides that raid on Investigative journalist was illegal

Wellington (New Zealand) High Court judge Justice Clifford found that the search was illegal and that the Police had failed to disclose relevant information to the Judge who issued the warrant. The warrant was “fundamentally unlawful” and any search was therefore unlawful.

Justice Clifford also expressed concerns about other aspects of the Police’s actions.
