Sixth female tourist killed in New Zealand since October 31

Posted by te2ataria on November 11, 2017

WATCH THIS SPACE: YOUR LIFE MAY WELL DEPEND ON IT!

Young English female killed just 10 days after arriving in NZ!

An English tourist who fell off a retaining wall at a Waihi Beach property, Bay of Plenty [of Deaths] on Thursday, has since died in Waikato Hospital, a report quoted police as saying.

The 27-year-old had suffered critical head injuries in the four metre plunge, the report said.

“The woman had been staying at the Jenkinson Street house in the beachside town with a group of friends and had arrived in the country about 10 days ago.”

As per usual, the circumstances surrounding her death were not believed to be suspicious, police said.

She was the sixth reported foreign female to be killed in New Zealand since October 31. The other five victims were killed in separate fatal crashes on NZ’s death roads.

FAKE Freedom of Information: Police Censorship = NO Information!

DOCTORED Road Toll and Statistical RESURRECTIONS

Only one road fatality report allowed by police over the last EIGHT days
Police Road Fatality Reports: Extreme censorship is in effect for tourism and commercial reasons. Of those fatalities reported by police, many are statistically resurrected by the Ministry of Transport (MoT).

Only ONE road fatality report has been allowed by police since Saturday, November 3, as of posting, despite at least 72 serious crashes being reported locally over the period—a double statistical impossibility.

Fatal crash on SH3, New Plymouth
Wednesday, 8 November 2017 – 12:36pm – Central
Wallace Noel Flay, 39, was killed in a collision on State Highway 3 near Bell Block, New Plymouthon on Tuesday 7 November, 2017.
“Police were called to the crash between a ute, a light truck and a cyclist south of Airport Drive at approximately 9:20am.” http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/fatal-crash-sh3-new-plymouth The victim was occupant of the ute, but the fates of the cyclist and truck driver are not known.

NOTE: The deceased was statistically resurrected by the Ministry of Transport (MoT). See entry here!

Welcome to the World’s Deadliest Tourist Destination – Truth about NZ Deadly Roads, as We Know it:

  • Based on insider information, statistical models and local news, we believe about 900 people were killed and more than 8,000 others seriously/critically injured on NZ suicide roads in 2016; however, only 328 fatalities were reported last year. [For every 12 or so victims, who die later in a hospital, only one death is reported. See blog content.]
  • To protect the tourist industry and massive foreign investment, about two out of every three road fatalities go unreported, or the dead are statistically resurrected by NZ government.

Tourist Road Fatalities in NZ are a State Secret

Medical Miracle, or Malicious MENDACITY?

Of an estimated 2,500 people who have received near-fatal, critical, or serious injuries on New Zealand roads so far this year, less than a handful have perished from their injuries, according to NZ police reports, or lack thereof.

Road Fatalities and STATISTICAL RESURRECTIONS

[The following list represents figures monitored by the moderators and blog contributors. It represents only a fraction of the actual deception and disinformation by the authorities.]

  • No. of known STATISTICAL RESURRECTIONS performed by MoT on Nov. 8, 2017 : at least ONE.
  • As of Nov. 6, at least FIVE additional fatalities remain unreported by police.
  • No. of known STATISTICAL RESURRECTIONS performed by MoT on Oct. 24, 2017 : at least THREE.
  • No. of known MoT resurrections on Oct. 17, 2017 : at least TWO
  • No. known MoT resurrections on Oct. 13, 2017 : at least ONE
  • No. of known MoT resurrections on Oct. 2, 2017 : at least ONE
  • No. of known STATISTICAL RESURRECTIONS performed by MoT on Sept. 26, 2017 : at least ONE
  • On Monday, August 28, police reported at least THREE road fatalities. All three victims seem to have been statistically resurrected by the Ministry of Truth (Minitru).
  • At least FIVE, possibly as many as SEVEN, people were killed in serious crashes on Wednesday, August 23, according to a informed source, but only three fatalities were reported by police.
  • Both the actual number of road fatalities and cases of statistical resurrections performed by the Ministry of Transport (MoT) over the September 22-24 weekend remain UNKNOWN.
  • Between September 18 and 21, 2017 at least SIX road fatality victims were resurrected by MOT.
  • At least nine road fatalities occurred over the weekend (September 1 – 2), according to reliable insider information. However, only four of the deaths were reported by police, and of those, just three were recorded by the Ministry of Transport.

Official Corruption

“The Instant Kiwi”

Did you know Peter Thiel screwed the NZ taxpayers out of tens of millions of dollars, while sodomizing corrupt NZ government ministers, and got a preferential citizenship, too?

“The Instant Kiwi” even forced the corrupt NZ government to have details of his immigration application redacted.

The Department of Internal Affairs allowed billionaire Peter Thiel to redact key information from his citizenship file, a decision later criticised by the Ombudsman who said the saga attracted ‘public disquiet.’”

English tourist lasted only 10 hours in New Zealand

Posted by te2ataria on November 6, 2015

More overseas visitors, international students, foreign workers and new immigrants are killed, or injured in New Zealand than in rest of the “developed” world combined.

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

United in Death

Posted by te2ataria on January 12, 2013

Q. What do an Aussie swimmer, a Chinese granny and an English biker have in common?

A. They all were among an undisclosed number of tourists killed in New Zealand recently!

Aussie tourist Mathew Slade, 21, drowned after going for a swim with friends in the Waikato River, near Taupo, on Wednesday evening. His body was recovered at 2.15pm on Thursday, police said.

Mathew Slade had been camping at the nearby National Equestrian Centre, and was preparing for a competition in New Zealand in March, according to a report.

Posted by te2ataria on February 17, 2010

Taiwanese Woman, Englishwoman change tour schedule to meet their maker

A 48-year-old Taiwanese tourist was killed in Queenstown when a bus struck her about 9.30pm last night. She was visiting New Zealand with her husband and two adult children.

The Englishwoman, who came to New Zealand to visit friends and relatives, was killed in a two-car head-on collision in Northland.  The victim was a passenger in the car, and two others suffered near-fatal injuries. Their fate is unknown.

The crash occurred about 2.15pm on State Highway 12 at Mamaranui, 20km northwest of Dargaville, police said.

“The third person was killed when a vehicle crashed into a ditch on SH57 at Linton, near Palmerston North, just before 6pm.” Reports said.

Twice More Likely to Get Killed in NZ in 2009-10

If you are planning to travel to New Zealand, don’t. Why? Because you are at least twice more likely to get killed here in 2009-10 tourist season than last year!

Third Asian Murdered in New Zealand in One Week!

Posted by te2ataria on June 17, 2008

Asians are Killed Like Flies in New Zealand

Stay Alive; Don’t Go New Zealand!

Update:

The Asian Victim of car murder was named as Mrs Joanne Wang, who lived in Auckland, New Zealand. Her 8-year-old boy watched her die. “She was lying totally lifeless, there was blood gushing out of her ear pretty profusely.” A witness said.

The Driver Smashed His 4×4 Into Her, Then Backed Up and Drove Over Her

A 39-year-old Asian woman, presumed to be Korean or Japanese, was murdered in Auckland as her assailant who snatched her handbag knocked her down with his 4WD and drove over her.

The Asian victim suffered serious head injuries and died about an hour later.

The other two Asians who were murdered in New Zealand last week were Mr Navtej Singh, 30, an Indian shopkeeper who was shot to death in his Auckland shop, and Mrs Yin Ping Yang, an 80-year-old Chinese woman who was viciously attacked and fatally injured in her home.

Who is Behind the Asian Murders?

How many white NZ women are murdered assassination style after having their handbags snatched?

New Zealand Police: “Tourists Lucky To Be Alive!”

Posted by te2ataria on June 15, 2008

Mr Wolfie to the Next Busload of Tourists: Hello Lunch! Do You Feel Lucky Today?

Two separate tourist buses, one carrying Japanese tourists and the other Chinese, crashed in less than 24 hours in New Zealand.

In the first incident which occurred Saturday near Matamata, New Zealand, at least 7 Japanese tourists were treated for injuries.

The second tourist bus crashed and rolled down a bank, with the bus ending up on its side on Sunday. At least 8 Chinese tourists required hospital treatment for their injuries.

Police spokesman said the crash could have been a lot worse and the tourists were lucky to be alive! [They don’t normally survive the ‘mandatory’ crash!]

Background Information:

When is an “accident” not an accident?

In all probability, as with the rental cars in New Zealand, the buses are NOT properly maintained or serviced. It doesn’t take much for a poorly maintained car, bus, quad bike, ski jet, airplane … to go out of control.

ONE MORE TOURIST KILLED IN NEW ZEALAND

Posted by te2ataria on June 13, 2008

ANOTHER ANOTHER… TOURIST TOURIST … KILLED KILLED … IN NEW ZEALAND IN NEW ZEALAND …

Folks, is this a repeat viewing of Groundhog Day or what?

The tourists in New Zealand are being murdered, killed on the roads or in entirely avoidable accidents like flies as the tourism industry laughs all the way to the bank!

We say enough killing of the tourists in New Zealand!

A 19-year-old English tourist was killed in a quad bike “accident” on a kiwifruit orchard in Katikati, media reported.

“The on-farm handling of quad bikes has been an issue raised by accident investigators and insurers. Bikes have been getting bigger and more powerful Training of riders has also been an issue.” (Source)

When is an “accident” not an accident?

In all probability, as with the rental cars in New Zealand, the quad bikes are NOT properly maintained or serviced. It doesn’t take much for a poorly maintained car, quad bike, ski jet, airplane … to go out of control.
