Kiwi Government Lawyers Deny Knowledge of Spying

Planning for the illegal spying mission on Kim Dotcom happened out of earshot of the Government's legal advisers, the Crown Law Office says.

The office - which participated in every publicly declared meeting leading up to the raid - has distanced itself from knowledge of the GCSB's involvement.

Police are investigating the month-long spying on Dotcom which broke laws designed to protect New Zealand residents and citizens from intrusion by the Government Communications Security Bureau.

The Crown Law Office says it had no idea why GCSB representatives were at planning meetings before the January raid.
