Security expert Paul Buchanan – NZ Government ignores Huawei a threat

Security expert, Paul Buchanan, is calling for greater oversight and accountability of New Zealand’s intelligence agencies.

Speaking on TV3’s The Nation this weekend, Mr Buchanan said the GCSB’s assurances that Huawei posed no threat to national security was another example of its incompetency.

“If you were to ask me a month ago if I would take the GCSB’s word at face value I would have said, absolutely… But given revelations over the past month of some playing loose with the rules… there may be some political commonsense that is lacking in seeing obvious threats.”
