On this section of the Security Website we are going to inform you of what your government intelligence and security agencies are doing to protect YOU.

In this ever changing socio-political environment, and since the shift from the Cold War era to the global threat of terrorism, the team at the Security Website will let you know what information is of use to you, along with other useful information regarding intelligence policies and intelligence resilience and oversight.

We have compiled a list of reports by certain government bodies that explain and highlight what they do and what they have done in the past. A list of government bodies attributed to the oversight of intelligence agencies are listed below.

Oversight

A democracy always needs to carefully balance the right of citizens to go about their business undisturbed, and the right of the State to protect national interests.

The NZSIS cannot reveal as much about its activities as other government departments because effectively protecting national security requires a certain level of secrecy. Special arrangements ensure that there are independent authorities able to check, on behalf of the public, that the Service operates properly and lawfully.

The Intelligence and Security Committee

This Committee was established by the Intelligence and Security Committee Act 1996 to increase the level of oversight and review of:

the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service, and

the Government Communications Security Bureau.

The Act requires that this committee has a membership of five, including the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition. Two of the remaining three members are nominated by the Prime Minister, and one by the Leader of the Opposition.

The Intelligence and Security Committee’s functions

The Committee's functions, in relation to the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service, are to:

examine the Service's policy, administration and expenditure

consider any bill, petition or other matters about the Service referred to it by the House of Representatives

receive and consider the Service's Annual Report, and

consider other matters with security or intelligence implications referred to it by the Prime Minister.

 

The Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security

The position of the Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security was established by the Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security Act 1996.

The Inspector-General is authorised to see any material held by the Service, including sensitive operational information, and has a right of access to Service staff, premises and records in order to fulfil these oversight and review functions.

The Inspector-General is required to be a person who has been a judge of the High Court. The Inspector-General is currently Hon. Paul Neazor.

The Inspector-General's role

The Inspector-General's role includes enquiring into:

any matter relating to the Service's compliance with its legal obligations

the propriety of its actions, and

complaints about the Service.

The Inspector-General is specifically charged with reviewing the manner in which interception warrants are sought and acted upon by the Service, to ensure that all actions relating to warrants are proper and comply fully with the letter and spirit of the law.

The Inspector-General reports annually to the Prime Minister. A copy of the report is given also to the Leader of the Opposition. An unclassified version is tabled by the Prime Minister in Parliament.

With the Prime Minister's concurrence, the Inspector-General may also report at any time - generally or on particular matters - to the Intelligence and Security Committee.

For more details of the Inspector-General’s functions, see the Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security Act 1996.
