NZ Muslim community's rights breached by spies - advocates

From Morning Report, 7:09 am on 25 March 2019

The SIS has been accused of breaching the human rights of the Muslim communities it has been monitoring. A newly released report from the Human Rights Foundation shows the SIS used informal chats and offers of payment to young men, who were not advised of their rights and who felt pressured to spy on their mosques. And the foundation is saying this research back up its demands for an open and transparent inquiry into the security agencies and the terror attacks. Phil Pennington reports.
