The Ministry for Primary Industries’ Stephen Rudsdale says a fisheries officer immediately went to check the beach in Whangerei Heads after the first member of the public phoned authorities.

“During the inspection, one of our officer’s was allegedly threatened by one of the divers,” he said.
“When they subsequently searched the area, they found 52 scallops dumped on the water’s edge and a catch-bag containing another 176 scallops in the water.”

The stupid, lying media all attacked Donald Trump because he mentioned what is going on in Sweden. They all falsely accused him of saying that Sweden had suffered a terror attack.

A Catholic order’s leader dropped to his knees and begged a brother to face child sex abuse charges in New Zealand yet still paid to take the extradition battle as far as Australia’s highest court.
Brother Timothy Graham believes his predecessor as provincial of the Hospitaller Order of St John of God should not have funded the three-year extradition fight.
The issue caused great controversy, Brother Graham told the child sex abuse royal commission on Wednesday.
“The provincial at the time virtually got on his knees and begged the individual to go to New Zealand to speak to the police but his independent legal advice was not to do that,” he said.
“It would have been better if the individual had of done as the provincial asked and gone to New Zealand and spoke to the police.”
