So why doesn’t Labour care about this person’s deportation to New Zealand?

A 59-year old Australian teacher with dual New Zealand citizenship is to be deported from Thailand following his arrest in the country’s north on suspicion of child sex offences.

Peter Dundas Walbran, originally from Sydney, has been held in immigration detention cells in Bangkok since his December 9 arrest in the northeastern town of Ubon Ratchthani, 600 kilometres away, where he taught at a local international school.

Investigators say the deportation is expected to take place late on Friday as Thai police re-examine some of the digital media recovered from his apartment on the day of his arrest.

If they find anything illegal on his computer hard drive, they could have him extradited from New Zealand. But so far they haven’t found anything incriminating that would lead to charges in Thailand.

Walbran, a former head of the Australian International School in Jakarta, was jailed in Indonesia in 2012 and served two years of a three-year jail term for the rape and molestation of Indonesian boys, some under the age of 10.

He was deported to Australia in April 2014.

Investigators say Walbran failed to complete the registration process with Australia’s National Child Offender Register before leaving the country using a New Zealand passport.

Walbran travelled to Thailand earlier this year using his New Zealand passport, enabling him to avoid Australian travel alerts for convicted pedophiles.

Poor Peter seems to be in quite a pickle. ?Why isn’t Kelvin Davis out front advocating for his rights? ? What makes this man so different? ? What exactly is it about this criminal that finally has Labour turning their backs on him when they were all so keen to support the other ones?
