Spy plot hacks at NZ interests
One of the country's most high profile surveillance targets believes Prime Minister John Key may have to apologise to China over a plan to use that country's New Zealand offices for an audacious hack.
Emails taken from the United States National Security Agency by whistleblower Edward Snowden show NSA and the New Zealand Government Communications Security Bureau plotting to access China's computer systems by hacking the link between the Chinese consulate and its passport office in Auckland's Great South Rd.
Tame iti says that's the price of Mr Key's desire to be a gofer for American imperialism.
He says it ignores the fact New Zealand has separate and different interests regarding China.
"Economically Chinese investment here is phenomenal. New Zealand business doesn't want to jeopardise that kind of relationship. I'm assuming that in the next few days the prime minister will have to admit to it and then he might need to apologise to the people's republic," Mr Iti says.
He says John Key has no mandate from New Zealanders to commit this country as deeply to the American club as he is doing.
On breakfast television this morning, Mr Key denied the documents showed the action went ahead.
