Let us cut to the chase with the book Dirty Pol­i­tics. Here we have a man, who, by his own ad­mis­sion, has ei­ther stolen him­self, or re­ceived stolen prop­erty (hacked emails), know­ing them to be stolen (again by his own ad­mis­sion) and mak­ing per­sonal gain from those thefts (his book). Now the last time I checked, both th­ese acts were very se­ri­ous crimes in this coun­try. Then why are our po­lice not prose­cut­ing him for th­ese crimes? It surely does not mat­ter who said what to whom in the book. The first and most im­por­tant thing is that a se­ri­ous crime has been com­mit­ted for all New Zealand (in­clud­ing the po­lice) to see. They do not even have to in­ves­ti­gate be­cause he has ad­mit­ted the crime na­tion­wide.
