French hiker’s death kept secret by New Zealand police to protect tourism

Posted by te2ataria on January 20, 2017

Foreword: New Zealand police have been under strict orders to withhold, censor or otherwise block reports of tourist fatalities in New Zealand. The censorship also applies to reports of road fatalities. Currently, about two out of every three  road fatalities go unreported.

Frenchwoman killed on January 11, police withheld report until forced by foreign media to release details

A 53-year-old Frenchwoman was killed in a fall near Milford Sound, Fiordland National Park on January 11, but her death was kept secret until today, when police was forced by foreign media to release the details.

The victim was tramping with her husband, who has since left New Zealand. Her body has been recovered but it was not known when it would be returned to her family, said a report.

“A police media spokesman said miscommunication internally had meant details of last week’s incident were not released earlier.”

Recent fatalities in the area include

  • An unnamed 31-year-old Israeli soldier killed in 2016
  • German tramper Christine Lenicker kiled in 2015
  • Australian tramper James Poland killed in a 130-metre fall in 2011

In November 2016, a French tourist was killed while hiking on Banks Peninsula.

Road Murders: Getting killed on NZ roads is a compulsory affair

Posted by te2ataria on December 16, 2016

You’re sober, driving carefully, and the car is in good nick, but still end up dead on the way to work!

The hundreds of people who are being killed on NZ ‘s deadly roads each year are being road murdered, so their deaths must not be treated as accidental.

About 2.7 million licensed but not necessary qualified drivers, half million or so unlicensed/unqualified drivers and more than one million tourists (per year) drive on New Zealand death roads.

A large number of the above drive a vehicle under the influence (illicit drugs, banned substances, prescription medication…), while intoxicated, fatigued or mentally unfit, resulting in inordinate numbers of fatalities and injuries. [Other factors for the carnage include deadly roads, road unworthy vehicles…]

Between 2001 and 2014, New Zealand’s vehicle fleet reportedly increased by 32 per cent, while the population grew by 16 per cent and foreign travel was up by 15 per cent.  And over the last 10 years the number of international visitors has increased by about 30 per cent.

Here’s the latest road fatalities, so far today:

Two people were killed in Rakahouka crash, Southland

Two people were killed in a violent crash on Lorne-Dacre Road (SH 98) Rakahouka, Southland. A third person is in a critical condition, while a fourth has serious injuries. http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/update-two-people-have-died-following-rakahouka-crash-southland

Fatal crash in Omokoroa [Bay of Plenty of Deaths]

A fatal crash occurred in Omokoroa, Tauranga, just before 7.30pm this evening.  At least one person in the crash, which happened on Anderley Ave.  http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/fatal-crash-omokoroa

  • NZ Road fatalities as of December 16, 2016, according to government: 308
  • NZ Road fatalities as of December 16, 2016, according to statistical models: Up to 866

The State’s other Stinking Secrets

Truth hurts New Zealand tourism. The average tourist would not visit this country, if they knew true extent of the daily carnage on our deadly roads. Therefore:

To protect the tourism industry, about two-thirds of the road fatalities in New Zealand go unreported by our political police, or unrecorded by Minitru [“Ministry of Transport”.]  Se blog content for some of the most blatant omissions.

How Many Foreigners Killed in NZ Since 2000?

About 3,500 overseas visitors, international students, foreign workers, recent emigrants and refugees have lost their lives and 20,000 others seriously injured in New Zealand since year 2000.

English tourist survived Australian holiday, only to be killed in New Zealand

David Banks was “road-murdered” in a two-car collision near State Highway 1, near Oakleigh, about 2pm on Wednesday.

Mr Banks and his wife had flown from Australia and arrived in Auckland about 4am on Wednesday, and were on their way to the Bay of Islands, said Sergeant Simon Craig.

“They had been in Australia for 10 days, they had family there and had planned to tour New Zealand for six weeks. The wife is absolutely distraught, they have no family in New Zealand,” he said.

“The couple’s rental car collided with a southbound vehicle occupied by three people, all from Auckland. Both Mr Banks and the driver of the southbound vehicle were cut from the vehicles by firefighters,” according to a report. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11540602

Body in a Rotorua hot pool “unexplained”

Bay of Plenty of Deaths: a tourist reportedly discovered the body of an adult in a hot pool at Rotorua’s Kuirau Park Tuesday afternoon and alerted the police, said Senior Sergeant Karl Konlechner.

Earlier police had said getting the body out of the pool would be very difficult.

However, Rotorua police area commander was uncertain there was even a body in the pool in the first place (!)

“We are yet to confirm that there is a body in the pool, but we are working on that assumption,” a report quoted the Rotorua police area commander Inspector Bruce Horne as saying.

Body recovered from hot pool

In a later bulletin police admitted that the initial rumors were in fact correct and that a body had been recovered from the pool.

“The death is being treated as unexplained at this stage,” police said.
