|CHINESE ENTERPRISE PENSIONS.|
The MSD does not subject Chinese state pensions to Section 70, it denies
pre 1997 that China had a state pension.
Unlike the Chinese state pension, UK, American, Canadian and European state
pensions do not any govt funding involved.
For Chinese pensions to be exempt from Section 70 is racist treatment
of immigrants and Kiwis who have also paid into overseas govt social insurance
superannuation schemes and who yet loose these pensions to Section 70.
In 2004 in the Auckland High Court before Judge Dooge, a Mr. Sant Raj Rai
a Fijian immigrant to New Zealand and defended by the Social Security Appeal
Authority was challenged by the MSD in order the MSD could snatch his Fijian
govt pension granted for being a civil servant.
In an addendum to the case, the MSD tried to get the three clauses in the judgment struck out, the judge refused and even went further to deny the MSD an appeal.
It just goes to show how the MSD's own reviews concluded that the legislation is ad hoc, outdated and out of step with other countries social security systems.
