Police ordered not to speak to media

Cops are being stopped from talking to media.

Police officers are being stopped from taking media calls.

Southern district police commander Superintendent Mike Pannett made the order in a staff “advisory bulletin” on March 7, an Official Information Act request has revealed.

“If you are contacted by media, especially printed media, please do not make verbal comment on any matters over the phone,” Supt Pannett’s email said.

“Please simply ask that all questions are put in an email and then sent to you. You can give the undertaking that someone [who are trained to lie and spin the issues] will reply to those questions in due course.”  http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11649518


Trust me, but don’t ask any questions! E-mail me, instead???

Massey University associate professor of journalism Grant Hannis said important stories were broken through networking and contacts.

“To stage-manage the whole process there would be a real danger that it’s going to lead to bland, non-committal comments that take a long time to get back to reporters and it is an erosion of that basic accountability of authorities to the Fourth Estate.”

On Tuesday, the Otago Daily Times broke news that southern police had been told to remain tight-lipped over the nationality of drivers involved in fatal crashes [to comply with a secret directive issued by the Minister of Tourism, Rt Hon John Key, who is also the National Security and Intelligence Minister and, of course, the Prime Minister.]  http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11649518

No Road Fatalities Were Allowed Today, Either!

The State’s other Stinking Secrets

Truth about the daily road carnage hurts New Zealand’s $10 billion tourism industry…

Today is DAY 168 of the latest NZ TOURISTS or truth? (police censorship of road fatalities) campaign

  • Blog estimate: About 900 people are killed on NZ roads each year. [Most probably] up to 378 road fatalities have occurred in NZ since 1 January 2016
  • No of road fatalities recorded by Minitru: 140

How do they do it?

Police manipulate the road toll by censoring reports of fatal crashes, while the Ministry of Transport simply delete the unwanted road fatalities, even from their own published records.

Chinese Investors Pillaging Queenstown, too!

Chinese investors head south to Queenstown amid NZ house price boom
Property prices are surging in New Zealand vacation hotspot Queenstown as tourism puts the mountainous South Island town on the radar of Chinese investors.

Residential property prices in Queenstown jumped 22 percent in the year to the end of May to an average NZ$875,002 ($593,950), according to government valuer QV on Wednesday.

The rise was nearly twice the national average of 12.4 percent and even steeper than the booming Auckland market, where prices rose 15.4 percent to NZ$955,793.
New Zealand’s house prices are among the fastest rising in the world [despite the abject poverty that plague the nation and the homeless crisis], according to the International Monetary Fund, in large part to an influx of foreign investors and migration.
The lakeside town of less than 20,000 people hosts around 1.3 million international tourists a year, up from 980,000 in 2009, according to its tourism agency. The number of Chinese tourists has grown 867 percent over the past five years.

Slavery in New Zealand increasing with more migrants exploited

Posted by te2ataria on June 1, 2016

Tip of the Iceberg: New Zealand has an estimated 800 people living in modern day slavery —survey

New Zealand has an estimated 800 people living in modern day slavery, an international slavery survey says.

The 2016 Global Slavery Index examines practices such as forced labour, human trafficking, child exploitation and forced marriage, surveying 43,000 people in 25 countries.

The number of people living in slavery in New Zealand has increased from 600 in the 2014 Global Slavery Index.

Slavery was most common in New Zealand’s fishing, dairy, agriculture, construction and hospitality industries.

“All of these are prone to labour exploitation,” said Don Lord, chief executive of human trafficking and slavery awareness organisation Hagar.

Don’t miss: 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’ located on various pacific Islands that are owned or protected by New Zealand [and Australia.]
  • Nearly every single kiwi fruit, apple, tomato…  grown in New Zealand is picked by a “modern-day” slave.
  • The maths is simple, work it out for yourself! [Tonnes of fruit picked  number of hours worked, amount paid per hour, amount deducted for finders’ fee, accommodation, food …]

Homeless Crisis in NZ

Marae calls for army to help with homeless crisis

Isn’t it time to put NZ Army to some good use?

The South Auckland Marae that has taken in 54 homeless families is calling for the armed forces to help out with the housing crisis.

Te Puea Marae in Mangere Bridge says it is now full and has 12 families on a waiting list.

“We really would like those in authority to lift this to another level,” Marae chairman Hurimoana Dennis told reporters today.

“Why can’t the armed services be brought in to create a staging area where people can stay?” he asked.

“The weather being what it is, it would be helpful if we had a temporary marquee and some help with some cooking and stuff as well.

“There are facilities across Auckland which could be used, even for a period of time, so that families can be housed.

“I think it should be top of everyone’s list because this is New Zealand 2016, we shouldn’t be having this problem.” http://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/news/national/marae-calls-for-army-to-help-with-homeless-crisis/
