Concerns at work release for prisoner

Monday September 16, 2019

Community members have expressed concern at how early in his six-year sentence prison inmate Ngaakitai Taria Pureariki has been allowed out on work release.

OPINION: In Corrective Services and in the prison at Arorangi there are honest men and women of integrity – prison officers and counsellors and chaplains and more – working very hard to solve the problem of rehabilitating violent criminals. But they can’t do it on their own.

He was one of Cook Islands’ leading tourism operators, until last year he beat his grandson to death. Now, Ngaa Taria is seeking redemption – but has he earned it? 

I bought a nice new shirt from Tuki’s the other week. I’m wearing it right now. It’s purple. It cost me $30.
