Una Jagose QC is the Solicitor-General of New Zealand and the Chief Executive of the Crown Law Office (CLO). She was appointed Solicitor-General in February 2016 and has previously held other roles within CLO since 2002. The Attorney-General and the Solicitor-General are the two Law Officers of the Crown, which means they are responsible for legally advising the Crown and representing its interests in the courts. Ms Jagose will be giving evidence about the nature of the Solicitor-General's role, about CLO’s conduct during the litigation by Lake Alice survivors against the Crown during the 1990s and 2000s, about CLO’s engagement with the Police regarding Lake Alice, and about CLO’s role in the New Zealand Government’s responses to communications from the United Nations Committee Against Torture.
