Back in the late 1980s, the French Government thought they could enter NZ, commit an act of terrorism (the Rainbow Warrior) and get out without the NZ police being able to do anything! The NZ police did solve the case, arrested two agents and issued international arrest warrents for the remainder!
Now the US government thinks they can run roughshod over NZ law, like they do to everyone else, in their "do as I say, not as I do" hypocritical attitude! This time, the NZ Judiciary is proving that they will stand up to the rule of law, unfortunately, the police have become enthralled by the stories from the US authorities!
Good to see the US being shown that their laws don't apply all over the world (how many US citizens think their constitution covers them outside the US anyway?)!
