Prime Minister John Key has announced that the GCSB has not undertaken mass surveillance of New Zealanders.

This comes after  a large event in Auckland where Kim Dotcom attempted to show that John Key had known that the GCSB had been spying on people.

The GCSB stands for Government Communications Security Bureau. It is a department of the government with its head office in Wellington. The Director of the GCSB reports directly to the Minister responsible for the GCSB, traditionally the Prime Minister.

The GCSB’s role is to ensure New Zealand’s safety and the safety of New Zealanders overseas.

The GCSB has been in the news a lot this week. Last year John Key said that if the GCSB had been spying on New Zealanders he would quit as Prime Minister.

Kim Dotcom had said that he would prove that John Key new about mass surveillance of New Zealanders. However, it seems that most of his information was either fake or he was unable to supply hard evidence.

John  Key did say that he could not control what information other countries found out about New Zealanders.
