Is New Zealand becoming a banana republic?

Former IAA Registrar Andrew Galloway made it crystal clear when defending himself before a German court.

Andrew Galloway alleges that New Zealand law applies outside of New Zealand, everywhere in the world, including Germany. Andrew Galloway calls it the “offshore offence provision”. Andrew Galloway avers -before a German court- that relevant German law would not apply within Germany.

Here’s about New Zealand’s Immigration Adviser Authority (IAA) insisting on enforcing a law, which cannot be enforced:

  • July 2014: The Martin Jenkins Report prepared for the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) concludes “that it is undesirable to retain a provision in legislation that cannot be enforced.” It is recommended to “remove the offshore offence provision on the basis that it cannot be implemented effectively”.
  • May 2017: The IAA receives advice that the offshore offence provision will not apply in some European countries.
  • March 2018: The IAA publishes a “Consultation Document” stating “MBIE does not consider that the offshore offence provision should be removed. The IAA has focused on awareness-raising in key offshore markets.” The IAA and former Registrar Andrew Galloway continue threatening professionals outside of New Zealand and outside of New Zealand’s jurisdiction.
  • May 2018: Legal proceedings commence in Europe (Germany) against the former IAA’s Registrar Andrew Galloway.
  • September 2018: The former Minister of Immigration Iain Lees-Galloway refers the matter back to the IAA stating, “The Authority is following its usual processes with regard to this case.”
  • April 2019: David Plunkett, former Chair of the Immigration Advisers Complaints & Disciplinary Tribunal, determines to shield the IAA from scrutiny by disregarding relevant laws. In favouritism, he fabricates allegations and issues decisions without notifying or hearing individuals involved. Eventually, David Plunkett defames a German government official.
  • October 2019: Prosecutors in Germany consider David Plunkett’s and Andrew Galloway’s communication to be “an opinion”.
  • November 2019: The former Registrar Andrew Galloway claims “state immunity” in his defense before a German court.
  • May 2020: Andrew Galloway and the IAA are facing claims over and above $500,000 in court. The IAA refuse to accept service of legal proceedings.


What are we doing here?

The way open societies become closed is by disruption of the rule of law.

Only a banana republic is known to enforce unenforceable laws.

The conduct of the IAA and their officers indicate that there is no lawfulness within the IAA.

It appears New Zealand taxpayers are now paying the price.
