Violent Criminals Hilton Hotel rights continue……….


FROM: Sensible Sentencing Trust:
Garth McVicar, National Spokesperson.

Violent Criminals Hilton Hotel rights continue………..
Victims left to scrape the barrel.


New Zealand’s liberal offender based gravy train system with 83% re-offending
has been given the green light once again!

The Government have dismally failed New Zealand’s ever growing number of Victim’s of violent Crime.

As the Public of New Zealand demand protection from Violent Criminals the Government have sadly failed New Zealand’s ever increasing number of Victims.

At 33,000 Violent offences last year it does not take much imagination to see Violent Crime Statistics passing the 500,000 for this decade.

After extensive and well researched submissions on the Victims Rights Bill, Sensible Sentencing Trust are very disappointed at the result.

Many victims who have been through the system and know the shortfalls had input into our Submissions. They will be devasted with this result. This Bill could have helped these people.
Once again they have been let down!!!

No matter what the rest of the bill states, under clause 10 the Victim has no legal right to “ Enforce the Principles”

Yet Margaret Wilson saw fit to pay $90,000 to a Mob member who felt his “ rights” had been infringed.
