Explanatory note

The purpose of this Supplementary Order Paper is to amend the Counter Terrorist Fighters Legislation Bill to ensure that the rights of New Zealanders are not unnecessarily infringed upon. Any compromise of civil liberties must be in proportion to any change of threat. As of yet, there has been no explicit definition of the threat and therefore, such a far-reaching intrusion of state powers is unnecessary at this stage.
