Man ‘mistakenly’ left in court cells for two nights
‘It was like torture!’
A man was left in the cells of Masterton District Court for two nights at the weekend without food.
“The only question was how long he would spend in a windowless cell with a toilet, a tap, a concrete slab for a bed, and a shoe for a pillow.”
He had no toilet paper, no mattress, and no natural light, reports said.
“One of the things he said was, it was like torture. [There was] no way of knowing how long he would be there or when he would get out,” his barrister Susie Barnes said.
It’s entirely possible that the victim, who has name suppression after pleading guilty to drink-driving, and was being held in the cell while his bail conditions were typed up, was conveniently forgotten and was being extrajudicially punished by police.
