Project Overview

The purpose of this project is to advice the Ministry of Justice on issues relating to Police search powers. The issues include: the power to obtain assistance orders for the search of computer systems; the power to use tracking devices, and; legislative amendments to correct the anomaly identified by the Court of Appeal in R v Aranui (1999) 16 CRNZ 304, relating to the use of evidence of offending obtained under an interception warrant. That advice was provided on 14 February 2002. The study paper for this project reproduces that advice.
