Police have visited at least 22 addresses of Brett Makiri's known associates throughout the Auckland Central, Waitemata, Counties Manukau and Waikato Police Districts today.

"Our focus remains on Mr Makiri's recapture and we will continue to visit his associates until we locate him," says Detective Senior Sergeant John Sutton. "It would be wise of Mr Makiri to turn himself as soon as possible.

"We remind members of the public and associates of Mr Makiri once again that assisting an escaped prisoner is an offence."

Police urge anyone who knows anything about Mr Makiri's whereabouts to call Police immediately on 111.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
