On the 13th December of 2010 I received a reply from the Ombudsman. It is interesting to read what they had to say and how they said it.
Of particular note is the confirmation of my new status in law. To quote (emphasis in bold is mine):
The Ombudsman has not countered my claim and has confirmed that I am no longer an Officer of HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN IN RIGHT OF NEW ZEALAND. I am a freeman on the land.
