The plane, flying from Auckland to Christchurch, reportedly ran into trouble “about 10 minutes” after takeoff, according to a passenger.

“He said jetstream coming over the engine on the aircraft’s right-hand side turned from white to grey, then black. The smell of burning rubber filled the cabin, causing panic among the passengers, he said.” NZPA reported.

The plane was diverted to Wellington airport for an emergency landing.

“It was pretty scary. A few people were panicking. . . not screaming, but just a bit fidgety, looking around at everyone,” the passenger told Radio New Zealand. “A few of us were wondering what was going on.  I’m a bit religious, and I was definitely saying a few prayers on the way down, I’ll put it that way.”

A naked Air NZ spokeswoman said the plane had to be diverted to Wellington because smoke was detected.

NZers help drive demand for sex and labour slaves

New Zealand hosts as many as ¼ million sex and labor slaves

  • One in 10 sex slaves worldwide work in New Zealand [and Australia,]  or in ‘prison-brothels’ on various pacific Islands owned or protected by New Zealand [and Australia.]
  • Nearly every single kiwi fruit, apple, tomato…  grown in New Zealand is picked by a labor slave

NZers accused over child pornography

A major conference on human trafficking starts in Wellington today, with one of the organisers alleging New Zealanders are helping drive demand for sex and labour slaves.The Salvation Army is hosting the three-day Pacific Trafficking in Persons Forum, and Salvation Army justice advocate Chris Frazer said that recession is feeding the global supply of sex and labour slaves.

Deteriorating household living standards in countries where traffickers source their victims are making the impoverished more vulnerable to profiteering traffickers, Ms Frazer said.

A recent report released by anti-child sex trafficking network ECPAT and The Body Shop highlighted the increasing vulnerability of children and young people being coerced or conned into prostitution or the production of child pornography.

Ms Frazer said New Zealanders who surf the internet for pornography were likely to be contributing to misery of those trafficked for the production of pornography, and most New Zealand homes would contain items or components of products that had been produced by slave labour.

Products from industries as diverse as clothing, sports shoes, coffee, chocolate, sugar, fireworks, glassware, jewellery and mobile phones and laptops had been found to have been made with slave labour.

“These are not one-off crimes against mainly children and women – the victims suffer day after day, year after year and the damage to their lives is often permanent,” she said.

The evidence for trafficked labour in the Pacific was anecdotal but significant, and it was time for a Pacific focus on the issue, she said.

Prostitutes Collective national coordinator Catherine Healy said people often claimed there was human trafficking in New Zealand but her organisation had not found evidence of this.

“We’re the only organisation working hands-on nationwide with sex workers and we’re not seeing any evidence of trafficking,” she said.

Ms Healy said the 2009 US report Trafficking in Persons defined a person as “trafficked” if they are working as a prostitute and aged younger than 18, and New Zealand had scored badly on this scale.

The American research said Fiji was a source country for children trafficked for the purposes of labour and commercial sexual exploitation, and a destination country for women from a number of countries trafficked for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation.

More than 21 Pacific nations are represented at the forum, including Fiji, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor-L’este and Western Samoa.

The forum, co-hosted by the Australian Institute of Criminology and the Pacific Immigration Directors’ Conference, is being held at the Quality Hotel and includes speakers from government departments and non-government organisations from the Pacific region as well as UN and law enforcement agencies.
