Teen missing in ice shelf presumed dead

Posted by te2ataria on September 15, 2009

Missing 18-yo student named as Edward Sai Louie

The missing student who allegedly fell through an ice shelf on Mt Rolleston near Arthur’s Pass on Saturday , was named as Edward Sai Louie.

Edward Sai Louie

Police said a friend who was skiing with Mr Sai Louie did not want to be named, and presumably is not a suspect in a possible foul play, either.

“About 5pm, while Mr Sai Louie and his friend were descending from the Low Peak of Mt Rolleston, he is believed to have fallen through the ice after shouting out to his friend for help.” A report said.

The Mt Cook Rescue Team [sic] abandoned its half-hearted search plan Sunday night, while “police said earlier attempts to get to the area where the man went missing were hampered because of a high risk of causing an avalanche.”

Don’t these people suck big time?

While tobacco companies are made to put warning signs on their products in most countries, New Zealand govt has exempted itself from warning ski enthusiasts about the deadly perils of skiing on or climbing Southern Alps.

Fonterra: 43 percent Liable, 100 percent Moral Cowards!

Posted by te2ataria on September 20, 2008

Update Sept 22-08: Sanlu Was First Banned in 2004, then Reinstated

submitted by a reader

Fonterra directors have committed corporate manslaughter (homicide).

Are the moral cowards at Fonterra now hiding behind the Crown trying to avoid liability for corporate manslaughter by putting the blame on New Zealand Embassy whose moral cowards are protected by diplomatic immunity?

Could it be that the Chinese authorities are so stupid they might buy into this “he said, she said” farce?

If the Chinese government were free of gangsters and racketeers (wishful thinking),  they would charge the  Sanlu-Fonterra joint venture board with corporate manslaughter, allow class action against the joint venture and its directors in China and New Zealand,  and  disqualify all persons and companies involved in the deadly corporate negligence case, especially the Fonterra directors, from doing business ever again in their country.

The Facts:

  1. The Sanlu-Fonterra Board knew about the poisoned baby formula as early as first week in March, 2008.
  2. The resident SIS/Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade agents in China, New Zealand Embassy in Beijing, MFAT HQ in Wellington, Trade Minister Phil Goff and PM Helen Clark knew about the incident within days of Sanlu-Fonterra receiving their first complaints, possibly by as early as March 5, 2008.

Here’s a new version of their cock and bull story:

NZ Embassy waited for more Sanlu info

Saturday, 20 September 2008 – http://www.stuff.co.nz/4700010a11.html

New Zealand’s embassy in Beijing was first told by Fonterra in mid-August about reports of contaminated milk making babies sick, but lacked the information to make an official report, the foreign affairs ministry said today.

Green Party politicians say Fonterra should not have sat for six weeks on the knowledge that its Chinese joint venture, Sanlu, had sold milk powder that poisoned babies, killing four children and making thousands sick.

On August 14, Fonterra China gave an informal indication to a New Zealand embassy official about reports of a small number of sick children, and that 43-per cent Fonterra owned Sanlu appeared to have been receiving milk contaminated with melamine.

Five days later, Fonterra China sought advice from the embassy about how the Chinese government would respond to notification of a local health issue, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) said today.

The embassy advised that the Chinese central government would normally be informed by local authorities.

On August 22, Fonterra advised the embassy that Sanlu had a problem with contaminated product, and that Fonterra had urged local authorities for a full product recall.

Over the next week, the embassy and Fonterra continued discussions about how the problem was being handled, with Fonterra providing confidential information including talks with Sanlu and local authorities.

“Notwithstanding some information gaps, the ambassador decided to inform the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade in Wellington of the situation as he understood it,” the ministry said.

The ambassador told the ministry that Fonterra appeared to have a sensitive problem, and the embassy would report formally when it was confident about the information it was receiving.

The embassy sent a report to the ministry which was received on September 1 and Trade Minister Phil Goff met MFAT officials the next day and sought further information and a briefing paper for ministers as soon as possible.

A formal report was finalised on September 5 and provided to key ministers that weekend, with Prime Minister Helen Clark directing officials to attend a special meeting of ministers on September 8.

“At the direction of ministers, instructions were given to the embassy in Beijing to contact relevant central government agencies in China to convey the views and concerns of the New Zealand Government.”

On September 9, the ambassador and other embassy staff called relevant agencies in China.

There had been daily updates and exchanges between the embassy and officials in Wellington since then, and New Zealand remained in close contact with the Chinese government, MFAT said.

“New Zealand has made a general offer of assistance if Chinese authorities needed anything from us – they have not requested anything at this point.”

The Chinese government has faced panicked parents and public dismay since officials and the Sanlu Group, the nation’s biggest maker of infant milk powder, last week revealed babies were sick with kidney stones and complications from drinking toxic powder.

Fonterra has said its directors were first told of the poisoned infant formula on August 2, and were unable to persuade Sanlu and local officials to make a public recall. It did not speak out publicly because it thought working within the Chinese system was the best way to get the poisoned product off the market.

A nationwide check has found melamine contamination in dairy products ran wider than the tainted milk powder that has sparked a widening scandal, with nearly 10 per cent of samples from China’s three top dairy companies found to be tainted.

American tourist killed in New Zealand

Posted by feww on February 28, 2008

[Submitted by a guest writer]

Wrongful Death as the Result of Failure to Warn of Dangers!

Another avoidable Death!

This time an American tourist was killed in New Zealand. Alan Paul Leger, a 57-year-old from Boston, just a name to the readers, but a real person to his family, alive and well just a few days ago, is now dead. Was he murdered, or did he die because the authorities failed to warn him of the dangers? Either way, one or more people are directly responsible for his death and they should be brought to account.

To add insult to injury because the victim was an American, and the New Zealanders don’t like “septic tanks” (Yanks) in their neck of the woods, New Zealand police declared: “The American tourist who fell to his death in the Mt Cook National Park yesterday was inexperienced in the alpine environment.”

Mountain Safety Council chair Ross Meder added: “Tourists often fail to realise weather conditions can change extremely quickly in New Zealand, much more so than in the Northern Hemisphere.”

Well, thanks for letting the deceased know. He would be sure to be careful next time!

WE WILL NEVER KNOW! And that’s what makes NZ such a fascinating tourist deathtrap!
