Vodaphone email exchange attempts to refute phone tapping claims

Croz Walshe (as usual) blogs in support of Vodaphone's ridiculous claims of piousness but what is most revealing is the email exchange as posted by Croz, and why as Radio New Zealand's story points out, Croz should be anywhere near this private email exchange between a journalist and a telco (and most certainly why Croz got the replies but the journalist did not).

From Croz's blog:

This is the latest exchange on the phone tapping allegation: 
To: ''"
RE: Tevita Mara claims 
I would just like to clarify something. Has Vodafone ever been ASKED by the military, police, or Fiji Intelligence Service, to intercept phones (landlines or mobile phones) or the internet?  
Thanks,  Bridget. 
Ligavatu Gukisuva, Vodafone Fiji's PR man, replies: 
Our discipline forces  have requested for this (mobile phones records) few years back for criminal investigation and we have informed them that we do not have the capabilities as mentioned below to facilitate their requests. Our position is still the same until today. 
A further comment by Vodafone CEO Aslam Khan: 
Fiji police has asked, as they do now and in the past, for call detail records for criminal investigations and done so with search warrants . Fiji Military has never requested for records or interception or monitoring .. they all know we don't have the capability ... so what's all these fuss about? RadioNZI are being taken for an wild goose chase  !!  
And this comment from Max received today:

TheMax has left a new comment on your post "On the Alleged Phone tapping: Some Facts at Last":  
Croz,  I'm currently working in one of these phone service providers and have been employed in this industry for a little more than 20 years. 
No one is tapping anybody's phone and that's a bare fact. But what the service providers can do, and is always part of the phone service, is record the call details such as the CLI, CLID, time and duration, and date. The actual conversation is not recorded. 
Some people are always in the knack of spreading false information by merely assuming it's being done in Fiji. The law in Fiji doesn't allow phone tapping and that's it. End of story.

The technological support to carry out this illegal tapping is provided by unrecognized companies.
