Abstract

007 would hardly pause to ponder the civil liberties implications of his spy gadgets. Parliament, on the other hand, has been confronted with this issue in its overhaul of investigative powers under the Search and Surveillance Act 2012. The Act’s surveillance device regime replaces the piecemeal provisions that previously governed the use of interception devices, visual surveillance devices, and tracking devices. It aims to strike a balance between law enforcement needs and human-rights values.

Keywords: NZBORA, s21, Hamed, search, surveillance, privacy, video, visual, communications, tracking, warrant
