New Zealand has a key role to play in global efforts to combat money laundering and counter the financing of terrorism, Justice Minister Amy Adams said at the opening of the Asia Pacific Group on Money Laundering in Auckland today.
The crime figures from the Better Public Services results show there were around 64,000 fewer crimes in the past year than in June 2011, though data for the most recent quarter serve as a reminder that there is always more work to be done, says Justice Minister Amy Adams.
Cyberbullying is a real and growing problem. It’s not a minor issue confined to a small group of people. One-in-five New Zealanders aged 13-30 years have experienced harmful communications on the internet. We need to do something to stem these new and insidious threats.
Justice Minister Amy Adams says the Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Legislation Bill implements a number of measures to strengthen New Zealand’s response to organised crime both domestically and abroad.
New Zealanders are seeing huge improvements in the time it takes to access justice services with a big reduction in the average age of District Court criminal cases, Justice and Courts Minister Amy Adams announced.
