No charges to be laid against missing trampers despite lockdown

RNZ posted the article • 0 comments • 74 views • 2020-05-31 14:28 • added this tag no more than 24h

 

 
The missing trampers who sparked a massive search and rescue operation in Kahurangi National Park will not face any charges even though they were on a risky multi-day tramp, which was forbidden during level 3 lockdown.

Dion Reynolds and Jessica O'Connor were found on Wednesday after 19 days lost in rugged terrain, at times in bad weather and totally out of food, but suffering only minor injuries.

The 23-year-olds entered the bush on May 8, even though New Zealand had been told to stay at home as much as possible and only to engage in low-risk activities that would avoid the need for rescues or medical care. That included restricting tramping to day walks on easy trails.

Nelson Bays Area Commander Inspector Paul Borrell told Checkpoint the trampers, who are now both safe and well, will not receive a formal warning because getting lost is not an offence. view all

Documents obtained by Checkpoint have revealed numerous issues and a serious lack of consultation before the launch of the Police's Armed Response teams.

The trials were launched in Counties Manukau, Waikato and Canterbury, last year in response to the Christchurch mosque attacks.

But internal documents, obtained by Checkpoint under the Official Information Act, detail numerous issues.

And as Nick Truebridge reports, papers show racism training has also been proposed to curb the ART's potential impact on Māori communities. view all
