Arrest In Whangamata School Arson
Title: Arrest In Whangamata School Arson
A school student has appeared in court in relation to a
suspicious fire at a Coromandel school last week that caused
several thousand dollars worth of damage.
Sergeant Martyn Hughes of the Thames-Coromandel CIB said a
joint Police and NZ Fire Service investigation established
that the cause of the fire at the Whangamata Area School on
14 November was the reckless use of matches.
"As a result
a 17-year-old male student from the school was charged with
arson and appeared in the Thames District Court yesterday.
"The man was bailed to reappear in the Waihi District
Court at a yet to be determined date next month and Waikato
Police would like to thank the local Whangamata community
for all their assistance during this enquiry."

On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag
One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.
This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.
What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
