  • Part 4A: inserted, on 1 April 1999, by section 35 of the Immigration Amendment Act 1999 (1999 No 16).

114A Object of Part
  • The object of this Part is to—

    • (a) recognise that the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service holds classified security information that is relevant to the administration of this Act; and

    • (b) recognise that such classified security information should continue to be protected in any use of it under this Act or in any proceedings which relate to such use; and

    • (c) recognise that the public interest requires nevertheless that such information be used for the purposes of this Act, but equally that fairness requires some protection for the rights of any individual affected by it; and

    • (d) establish that the balance between the public interest and the individual's rights is best achieved by allowing an independent person of high judicial standing to consider the information and approve its proposed use; and

    • (e) recognise that the significance of the information in question in a security sense is such that its approved use should mean that no further avenues are available to the individual under this Act and that removal or deportation, as the case may require, can normally proceed immediately; and thus

    • (f) ensure that persons covered by this Act who pose a security risk can where necessary be effectively and quickly detained and removed or deported from New Zealand.
