New Zealand Thread

Recommended Posts

Just in case you thought the fascists in NZ weren't paying attention to Trump's lot:

Air passengers arriving in New Zealand could face fines of $5000 if they refuse to hand over passwords and pins to phones.  This "digital strip search" is thought to be the first to be imposed by any country and came into effect on Monday with the 2018 Customs and Excise Act.  Travellers who fail to hand over passwords could be fined, prosecuted and have their device confiscated.  While the act gives officials new powers to force travellers to hand over passwords, there must be a reasonable suspicion against either the device or the carrier before a warrant can be given.--- https://www.nzherald.co.nz/travel/news/article.cfm?c_id=7&objectid=12136955

These Customs fascists will be using this new power like a new toy, as after they've looked at the phone,  they can declare, nothing here and let you go on your way, with only 1/2 a day wasted and your dignity trashed.

Moral of the story: buy and maintain a "burner" for travel.

Could any NZ expert on this board please study Mr Stick´s comment on the NZ press in his latest Weekly and either confirm his findings or declare him tingtong.
