There is no law which supports the use of a lie detector, which has no place in New Zealand law. So while you can try to trick him into admitting he did something, you would not be able to require him to undergo a test.

I want my money back. That answer was not worth 48 dollars

I am sorry you felt this was unsatisfactory. You can ask for your money back at any time.
