Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has banned all Government departments from using a firm of private investigators for spying.

It follows a Newshub investigation that found state-owned insurers Southern Response got the investigators from Thompson and Clark to snoop on victims of the Christchurch earthquake at the taxpayers’ expense.

Ms Ardern says this was “totally inappropriate” and other Government departments should not be using them.

“Absolutely not. In fact, we had a brief discussion amongst a few Ministers this morning, to make sure that none of their departments are engaging Thompson and Clark in the same way,” she explained.

“Their behaviour around spying and so on is totally inappropriate.”

The ban could be wide-ranging, with Newshub obtaining documents that show Thompson and Clark say they have a “significant client base… including Government Departments, State Owned Enterprises and Crown Research Institutes.”



Thompson and Clark has a controversial history – spying on protest groups for state-owned Solid Energy nearly 10 years ago.

Greenpeace CEO Russel Norman says Thompson and Clark are still at it – spying on the charity’s employees.

“Putting their own spies in activist groups, which I think most New Zealanders would find absolutely appalling that taxpayers’ money is being used for that purpose,” he said.

As the Prime Minister only banning that particular firm of private investigators or is that the intention of the Prime Minister to ban all government departments, state-owned entities and suchlike from every using private investigators? Will this mean that each of these organisations will be required to have in-house investigate or is it the intention of the Prime Minister to bring an end to the investigation of its citizens?

Private investigators are instructed to find certain types of information and if they failed to find that type of information may lose business. This results in fake information. For example reports being produced that they have the information that they have been asked to acquire but never actually producing because they had never actually identified anything with you particularity nor had providing any exhibits as evidence for their claims.
