Time For Kahui Family Arrests

27 June 2007

Time For Kahui Family Arrests

It is time for the Police to move in and start making arrests in the Kahui twins' murder case, says New Zealand First Law and Order spokesperson Ron Mark.

"If those guilty of this horrendous murder are too gutless to come forward, then all those guilty of harbouring them must be arrested now for obstruction of justice," Mr Mark said.

"The stonewalling of the family has gone beyond reasonable or acceptable and has become a national disgrace. What we have is a dysfunctional family perverting the course of justice and it can no longer be tolerated.

"The police did the decent thing and gave the Kahui family time to grieve and to bury the twins. But now the whole country is grieving not only for the death of these innocent children but also for the demise of decency.

"It takes only one person to have the guts to come forward and beak this case open – but we cannot sit back and wait for this to happen.

"If the family are going to continue to be uncooperative then the police must exercise all their rightful powers and start laying charges to bring this case to a close.

"This is not about culture or race, it is about justice," Mr Mark said.
