The director of the Government Communications Security Bureau Ian Fletcher (left) and the director of the Security Intelligence Service director Warren Tucker appeared before Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee in Wellington today – the first-ever public hearing into New Zealand’s spy agencies.

The committee comprised of National MPs Chris Finlayson and Tony Ryall, Labour Leader David Cunliffe and the Green Party co-leader. Tempers flared between Chris Finlayson and Russel Norman during the hearing.

Mr Finlayson said Mr Norman was a member of the committee and not “Judge Judy,” after Mr Fletcher said he could not answer some of Mr Norman’s questions.
