Hard News: Things worth knowing,
Something that bothers me about this issuer is: this Minister has a number of major responsibilities in New Zealand which relate to Justice, ACC and other matters. Why is she being 'sent' or 'paid' by our Government to go to a country whose civil rights and justice methods have been highly criticised over the years, from people on both side of the House, while we are still waiting for major, defining matters to be resolved under her watch here -e.g Bain case, Tina Pora (?), many issues before the Police Authority, human rights relating to NSA and Privacy, the delay of the courts re KDK - political interference in the judicial system?The Justice portfolio is a lynch pin to most action and direction developed by any government. So why would this Minister be gleaning anything on those responsibilities in China?
