Case Notes

Not all current investigations or prosecutions are covered by these Case Notes. Cases may be excluded for a variety of reasons including:

  • Name suppression may have been ordered by the Court;
  • The investigation may be confidential to assist with preservation of evidence or cooperation from possible witnesses;
  • A matter may be the subject of a joint investigation with other domestic or international law enforcement agencies who have requested confidentiality.

We are also bound by the Crown Law Office “Media Protocol for Prosecutors” that recommends that the name of a person charged should not be released until they have appeared in Court (and have had an opportunity to apply for name suppression).

If you are personally involved in a case and it does not appear in this section, please contact the Case Manager or email enquiries@sfo.govt.nz.
