Dotcom’s current status as a citizen in the country was not verified, which is why they acted illegally, as the tycoon maintained permanent residence visa in the country:
The GCSB relied on information provided to it by the Organized and Financial Crime Agency. In my view, an unacceptable performance.

Personally, I am very disappointed that the agency did not reach a full understanding of the operation of its law.
And according to the report, a number of confusions in the drafting of the Immigration Act led the agency to illegal surveillance.
