On Christmas Eve 2007 I sent an email to the commissioner of New Zealand police. Attached to the email was a copy of my letter to the Chief Justice of New Zealand, Dame Sian Elias.

The letter was a confession of perjury, outlining how, as an undercover police officer, I had tampered with evidence and told lies in court to obtain convictions against my targets while working as an agent-provocateur for the Crown.

Today, five years later, the one question often asked of me — “why haven’t you been arrested” — remains unanswered.

Here’s a clock that counts the days:

Tick~tock~tick~tock
