Parole Board At It Again
New Zealand First Law and Order spokesperson Ron Mark is demanding that the Crown Law Office advice regarding Parole
Board decisions involving Dr David Chaplow be made public and those responsible for allowing his involvement be brought
“This report must be made public as the consequent decision made by the board regarding who is to be re-heard raises
further questions,” said Mr Mark.
“Why are offenders who were freed from prison not being considered for re-hearing while many of those who missed out on
release are getting a second chance at freedom?
“Helen Clark came to office with the promise of a new era of public accountability and it is about time the Parole Board
honoured her promise,” concluded Mr Mark.
