Inconsistent convictions

Three companies and a director were yesterday ordered to pay more than $120,000 in fines and reparation after a steel gate fell off its hinges, killing a 7-year-old girl

One conviction.

The parents of a toddler who was killed by a falling gate at an Auckland kohanga reo want accountability over their son's death and are considering a civil lawsuit after police decided not to lay charges.

there was "ample evidence" for marae trustees and kohanga management that there were problems with the gates coming off their tracks

Another still outstanding.

Inconsistent, as usual, the law only applies to some. Even less chance when you have an MP assisting the Board.
