Reason for decision not to prosecute.

Katherine Raue made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

Response to this request is long overdue. By law New Zealand Police should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Katherine Raue

Dear New Zealand Police,

Please provide information regarding the Police investigation into the assaults which were reported to Police on 9 January 2014. These assaults were also reported to the media - this report appeared in the Wairarapa Times-Age - in particular, please provide the reasons for the decision not to prosecute the offender. It seems apparent that a prima facie case exists, the case certainly meets the criteria set out in the Solicitor General's Guidelines for Prosecutions and it is in the interests of justice that Police lay charges without further delay.

The following link shows that an independent witness to the assaults contacted the news media after becoming concerned about Police inaction, and the victim and others in the community are also concerned at this inaction, and the regular refusal of Wairarapa Police to prosecute violent offenders in the face of overwhelming evidence.

This assault took place in Clifton Avenue in Carterton on 9 January 2014 and was reported in the local newspaper the following day, a link to the report can be accessed at this link.

How strange that the journalist can locate a witness that saw the entire incident. The Police can not. Would the Police not wish to ask the journalist that reported the witness statement ?

I think Katherine, that your enquiry not being investigated is more about the likelyhood of a conviction, and in the event of a conviction a sentence that might inflict more than the sharp sting of a wet bus ticket slap.

Dear GLASSEY, Jymahl,

What BOLLOCKS! Are you alleging that Police don't know the identity of the witness or the offender? You know perfectly well that the offender was Ronald Charles Peacock! The victim has made formal complaints and statements about this serious violent offence at least three times so far - not to mention all the OTHER offences people have complained about - Peacock was recently convicted of assaulting the same woman outside the Court recently!

The offender was on bail at the time he assaulted the woman outside the Court too - and Police corruptly kept that a secret from the Judge, didn't they Jamahl? Because he'd be in prison now if the Judge had known that, wouldn't he Jamahl?

And the offender was corruptly assigned a Court funded lawyer when he wasn't entitled to one, wasn't he Jamahl? Peter Stevens was assigned to represent him at the taxpayer's expense - CORRUPTLY - wasn't he?

Police officer Mana whatsisname has stated that Peacock was arrested near the north end of Carterton with knives and a replica pistol.

There needs to be a retrial of the assault outside the Court because Peacock was on bail for serious charges at the time the assault was committed! And Peacock needs to be charged for the two assaults on the woman in Clifton Avenue WITHOUT DELAY!

I look forward to your response!

Yours sincerely,

Katherine Raue
