Mega CEO: Evidence speaks louder than wordsJuly 3 - 8am
Controversial proposals to reform the government’s Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) and Related Legislation Amendment Bill have divided opinion between government and country.
Mega CEO Vikram Kumar speaks exclusively to NetGuide about his views on the issue.
When asked why he opposed the bill Kumar played it straight down the line, citing a lack of evidence from government.
“There is no evidence there is even a problem,” he insists.
“Everybody believes in evidence based policy making but this proposal completely lacks any justification or evidence. It makes it a difficult problem to solve because nobody knows what, if anything, went wrong.
“The bill will offer a large amount of discretion which will allow government ministers free reign to do as they wish.
“Legislating very wide discretion goes back to the ‘just incase we need these powers’ trail of thought.”
