Police seek man who has absconded ahead of trial

Police seek man who has absconded ahead of trial

Police in Rotorua are seeking public assistance to locate a man who has breached his bail conditions; suspected of trying to avoid a pending trial.

Kainui Parkinson is facing trial for violence and sexual offending later this year.

He is described as a 39-year-old Maori who is 187cm tall, medium to athletic build. He has a number of tattoos including a snake on his lower left leg and a ring tattoo on the middle finger of his left hand.

He is known to drive an older style white Mitsubishi ute and has a number of associates on the north Island including strong family links to Te Kaha, Whanarua Bay, Tauranga, Whanganui and Palmerston North.

He absconded from his Whanganui bail address in mid February. Originally the trial was set down in Rotorua District Court for March but as the result of some procedural matters is now scheduled for September.

Detective Constable Steve Allpress said: "It is possible that associates will be helping to conceal him and they need to be clear that we will consider prosecuting anyone who is found to be helping him evade police."

The public are advised not to approach Kainui Parkinson but to report any sightings to police.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Rotorua Police on 07 348 0099. Alternatively information can be provided anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

(Most of the New Zealand survivors were transferred to the trenches in France, and eventually to the battle of the Somme in 1916.) More>>
