Take his mattress away

A convicted rapist is suing the government because he believes his mattress is too thin:

A convicted multiple rapist who claims he was tortured in prison, is suing three Crown agencies at the High Court in Auckland.

Nicholas Reekie is serving preventive detention for the rape of four Auckland girls and women, including an 11-year-old.

Reekie is seeking damages from the Corrections Department chief executive, the Attorney-General and Waitakere District Court.

He claims he was unlawfully imprisoned and maltreated in the high-care unit at Auckland prison in 2001 and 2002.

In court documents, Reekie says he was subjected to thin mattresses, poorly-done laundry and having to watch prison officers eat big fry-up meals while he ate dry sandwiches.

He also says he was tortured by a prison officer, whom he claims twisted his arm several times while he was strapped to a bed.

A convicted rapist, in jail indefinitely on preventative detention for rape is complaining about thin mattresses. He should have his mattress taken away and use stale bread for his sammies and see how he gets on then.

Wouldn’t it be ironic if a convicted rapist became the prison bitch.

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.
