Pacific Media Watch/The Intercept report - NZ spies on Pacific neighbours
Background from Evening Report:
A team of investigative journalists began last week to reveal how the New Zealand government has been spying on a massive scale on a host of Pacific nations.
The spying has been a part of the United States-led Five Eyes alliance that includes the US, Canada, Britain, Australia and New Zealand.
The investigation is a collaborative effort between The New Zealand Herald, investigative journalist Nicky Hager, the Sunday Star Times, and the US news site The Intercept.
The reports are based on a cache of official documents released by US whistleblower Edward Snowden – and are being referred to as the Snowden Revelations.
The documents reveal New Zealand has been intercepting all communications taking place in the South/West Pacific and parts of Melanesia.
