Wilfred Case: INZ has finally tipped the scale

Press Release
INZ has finally tipped the scale, suggests an investigative article by former human rights barrister turned journalist, Joseph Cederwall.
Having fought the good fight over the years as an immigration and human rights barrister, Cederwall is now co-editor at Scoop and investigating allegations of political interference and bias in INZ decision making.
Cederwall appears to have had enough of immigration’s schizophrenic and dictatorial incompetency. Some have suggested the latest decision to recklessly hand a foreign criminal residency status is enough to at least require the PM to immediately sack INZ Minister Lees-Galloway. However, Cederwall’s latest discovery of the 13 year old INZ case of the forced separation of Harmon and Carolyn Wilfred, beggars belief at the deliberate cruelty committed by INZ.
15 November 2018, Wellington New Zealand
Cederwall’s Scoop NZ feature article Christchurch investor couple separated by INZ for 3 years? is the first of a series about Harmon and Carolyn Wilfred, a couple who came to New Zealand in 2001 to invest in business, contribute to New Zealand through charitable activities and ultimately retire. However, this dream has been deliberately and systematically destroyed by immigration New Zealand for reasons that can only be described as convoluted and specious.
Harmon and Carolyn Wilfred
As a former CIA whistle blower under siege by the US government, not unlike Edward Snowden, Harmon certainly had his reasons for escaping political persecution to start a new and safe life; and being a senior couple absolutely in love, Canadian born Carolyn, literally followed her husband to “the ends of the earth” to begin anew down under.
After committing more than $5 Million in New Zealand businesses and charitable contributions through New Zealand NGO’s and their own charitable trust, by 2004, they were on their way to being accepted into New Zealand’s society by the local community, members of parliament and business leaders.
Then in late 2004, Cederwall’s article tells the story of further attempts at US persecution through the refusal of the US consulate to return Harmon’s passport on renewal, and to the necessity of Harmon’s renouncement of his US citizenship as his only option to preserve his personal safety and freedom. With the US State department’s acceptance of Harmon’s renouncement, he became stateless on 1 April 2005.
Harmon believes that INZ, in cooperation with the US CIA’s malice aforethought, has deliberately left Carolyn exiled to him as the proverbial “tethered goat” to unlawfully lure him offshore. When INZ was asked why the Wilfred’s have been forcibly separated, the compliance officer in charge, Richard Wilson replied, “It’s a matter of State” and vowed that he would personally see to it that they would never be reunited on NZ soil. Cederwall makes a case that the Wilfred’s maltreatment in New Zealand has been due to collaboration between successive NZ governments and US agencies dwelling in the political “swamp”.

Wilfred is imploring the New Zealand government to recognise their UN obligations to provide the agreed refugee/stateless person’s international protections, opening the opportunity for him and Carolyn to reunite and continue to peacefully invest and retire in New Zealand.
Read Cederwall’s astounding account of this systematic New Zealand Immigration and media sponsored destruction of Harmon and Carolyn’s reputations and businesses, all seemingly in the name of “national security”; leaving them now forcibly separated for over 3 years, 2 months and counting.
It’s time to expose this corruption and #ReuniteHarmonAndCarolyn!
