New Information About Hawke’s Bay Homicide To Feature On Cold Case

Detective Senior Sergeant James Keene, Hawke’s Bay CIB:

Hawke’s Bay Police investigating the 2018 homicide of Hastings man Eddie
Peters are encouraging people to watch tomorrow night’s Cold Case tv
episode when new information will be revealed.

Mr Peters, 45, was found collapsed and bleeding on the driveway of a family
member’s home on Diaz Drive, Flaxmere, on the evening of Thursday 15
November 2018. He had been violently beaten and died eight days later in
Wellington Hospital.

“Eddie had spent the afternoon and evening further along Diaz Drive at the
tangi for an old friend, a senior member of the Mongrel Mob. He wasn’t a
gang member himself but went to the tangi to pay his respects.

“We know that Eddie left there at about 11.30pm. He was attacked by one
or more people further along Diaz Drive. The reasons as to why this
happened are not entirely clear, but we need people to speak up and tell us
what they know and who was involved.

“There are people who have information, and maybe saw what happened but are
reluctant to talk with us. This was a serious assault which led to a
man’s death. Eddie’s whānau continue to grieve for their loved father
and friend.

“We’re hoping new details and fresh information will help us get the
answers they need.”

Watch Cold Case, 8.30pm – 9.30pm, Tuesday 22 November on TV1 or later on

Gordon Campbell: On The New Government’s Policies Of Yesteryear

Winston Peters is routinely described as the kingmaker who decides whether the centre right or the centre-left has a turn at running this country. He also plays a less heralded, but equally important role as the scapegoat who can be blamed for killing taxes that his senior partners never much wanted in the first place. Neither Ardern nor Robertson for example, really wanted a capital gains tax, for fear of Labour copping the “tax and spend“ label they ended up being saddled with anyway. Usefully though, they could tell the party faithful it was wicked old Winston who killed the CGT. More

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
