Senior police have launched an investigation into the Government Communications Security Bureau's illegal spying on Megaupload millionaire Kim Dotcom, the Green Party says.

Green Party co-leader Russel Norman said he received confirmation from Detective Superintendent Peter Read to say police were investigating a complaint made by the Greens into the GCSB's conduct regarding Dotcom.

Dr Norman said he made the complaint under the Crimes Act and expected an initial report on the police investigation by mid-November.
