Victim Support Questions EFB

Victim Support has voiced serious concerns about the EFB in their submission. Their conclusion is very specific to them but again shows how out of touch the supporters of this bill are.

[quote]Victim Support strongly urges the Government to consider the implications of the current wording of this Bill for advocacy organisations such as Victim Support. We also ask that the Government consider these implications in relation to our country’s obligations to the Victims’ Rights Act 2002 and the UN Declaration. In its present state, we believe the Bill is inconsistent with what New Zealand has said it stands for in advancing victims’ rights and has the potential to undermine the progress that has been made in helping victims to date.[/quote]

That is pretty hard hitting in particular noting the UN Declaration.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
