I guess the problem is though that of someone has made millions of dollars from illegal means and then becomes a new Zealand resident mainly due to their bulging bank account should they be able to hide behind their kiwi residency.
I don't think that is right.
But we have a functional legal system here. If you or I don't like this kind of things happen over here, we could support MPs who would pass tougher anti-piracy laws or tougher immigration laws etc.
I just don't feel comfortable about Americans come over here, have anyone they are pointing fingers at busted and ship away.
