“To whom exactly has NZ become indebted?” OIA request to NZ Prime Minister John Key

26 January 2010

‘Open Letter’/ Official Information Act to Prime Minister John Key:

“To whom exactly has NZ become indebted?”

Dear Prime Minister,

You were quoted as saying, on 25 January 2011:

“Our high level of foreign debt is New Zealand’s biggest vulnerability.”

Can you please uphold the principles of ‘open, transparent and democratically accountable’ government, and provide  the following information:

1) On a ‘line-by-line’ accounting basis, provide the detailed information which shows EXACTLY  to whom New Zealand has become  indebted, since the National /ACT Government came to power in November 2008.

2) In particular, the information which confirms since the National /ACT Government came to power in November 2008, whether or not New Zealand has become indebted to the Bank of America, any subsidiaries of the Bank of America, or any lending institutions of any form, which have any connections to the Bank of America.

Yours sincerely,
