(Open Letter to the Minister of Justice -- slightly edited)

Dear Mr. Little,

In my email of 21 April 2018 (which is also on the Web at fakefake.html), I drew your attention to Justice Ministry research (Sentencing in New Zealand: a statistical analysis, by Sue Triggs 1999 http://blackribboncampaign.altervista.org/sentennz.pdf), which indicated that sentencing discrimination took place against men, but not against Maoris.

I also drew your attention to the fact that this evidence had been constructively censored by the Ministry of Justice, which constitutes further discrimination against men, compounding the discrimination against men that occurs in sentencing. In view of these facts, under the Official Information Act, could you please inform me:

  1. What plans you have to make sure that the Institute of Judicial Studies consults Masculists such as myself – and not just Feminists – so as to make judges less anti-male;

  2. What plans you have to make sure that the Ministry of Justice follows up on the above research, so as to reduce the victimisation of men by judges;

  3. What punishment will be meted out to the appropriate people in the Ministry of Justice (e.g. the Secretary for Justice) for their having ignored and sidelined the above research, in order to teach the rest of the Ministry that discrimination against men should cease being their favourite activity;

  4. What means you can use to persuade the various Law Schools and legal bodies such as the Law Foundation and the Law Commission that discrimination against men should cease being their favourite activity as well, and

  5. What plans your Government has to create a Ministry for Men, so as to reduce the amount of routine discrimination against men that occurs in Government.

 

Since I received no reply from the Minister, I complained to the Ombudsmen, who replied in the same letter to two of my complaints, as follows:

 

Letter from Ombudsman 6 August 2018 p.1
Letter from Ombudsman 6 August 2018 p.2

 

I then wrote again to the Minister of Justice as follows:

 

11 August 2018

Dear Mr. Little,

Official Information Request: Discrimination Against Men Throughout the Justice System

In my letter of 17 June 2018, I drew your attention to Justice Ministry research (Sentencing in New Zealand: a statistical analysis, by Sue Triggs 1999), which indicated that sentencing discrimination took place against men, but not against Maoris. I also drew your attention to the fact that this evidence had been constructively censored by the Ministry of Justice, which constitutes further discrimination against men, compounding the discrimination against men that occurs in sentencing.

In view of these facts, I made an Official Information Act request, but you did not reply. I wrote to the Ombudsmen about your non-reply, but they responded by saying that I was asking you to create new information, and therefore not complying with the Official Information Act.

I deny that I was asking you to create new information, but I hereby make a new, reworded Official Information Act request, which clearly and without doubt asks about information that you already hold.

  1. What measures are in place and documented to make sure that the Institute of Judicial Studies consults Masculists such as myself – and not just Feminists – so as to make judges less anti-male;

  2. What measures are in place and documented to make sure that the Ministry of Justice follows up on the above research, so as to reduce the victimisation of men by judges;

  3. What measures are in place and documented to punish the appropriate people in the Ministry of Justice (e.g. the Secretary for Justice) for having ignored and sidelined the above research;

  4. What measures are in place and documented to persuade the various Law Schools and legal bodies such as the Law Foundation and the Law Commission that discrimination against men should cease being their favourite activity, and

  5. What measures are in place and documented to create a Ministry for Men, so as to reduce the amount of routine discrimination against men that occurs in Government.

Yours sincerely,

Peter Zohrab

 

In due course, I received the reply below:

In the above letter, Mr. Little referred to his letter dated 23 August 2018. However, I had not received it, so I phoned his office and asked for it to be resent to me.

Here it is (below):
