National Party Deputy Leader Paula Bennett said that the Party’s Auckland headquarters were broken into over the weekend, with three laptops stolen. Bennett said the burglary was discovered by staff this morning and reported to Police.

She said that the break-in triggered an alarm at the office building on Great South Road in Greenlane, Auckland.

The laptops were fully encrypted, Bennett said, and she had been advised whoever had stolen them was unlikely to be able to access the information stored on them.

She said that the break-in was incredibly concerning.

“I have got to say, it looks pretty sinister and suspicious and not a good start to an election year.”

The Party was looking at putting extra security in place around its Auckland headquarters in light of what’s happened.

Bennett said that the building was targeted a week ago with anti-Chinese propaganda, but she said she didn’t know whether that was linked to the burglary and she did not want to speculate.

Police said they would be at the scene today.
