Decisions of the New Zealand Parole Board may be requested under the Official Information Act (OIA).
Recent decisions requested by the media, which have been edited and released by the Board under the OIA, are available on this website.
To request a decision you can't find online, please visit our contact page.
Before releasing any decision, the Board must be satisfied that the public interest considerations outweigh the offender’s privacy rights (Sections 9(1) and 9(2)(a) of the Official Information Act). This analysis is done on a case-by-case basis.
