Thirty-two child-sex offenders granted permission to change their names

first_imgStuff co.nz 23 September 2020Family First Comment: Why? Are the rights of the community to be protected considered in these decisions?Thirty-two people on the Child Sex Offender Register have been granted permission to change their names by the Police Commissioner in the four years since the register started.The register was created in October 2016 to improve child safety by having up-to-date information available on known child-sex offenders living in the community that can be used to monitor risk of reoffending.As at July 1 there were 2862 people on the register.The Act that created the register allows anyone on it to change their name provided they have been granted approval by the Police Commissioner.Information provided to Stuff under the Official Information Act reveals that 38 people on the register had requested approval to change their names since it started. Thirty-two had been approved, three declined and three were being assessed.This is an increase from May last year, at which point just 13 applications had been made, of which 12 had been approved.Police do not release the names of those on the list.Before granting approval the commissioner must consider five factors; the safety of the offender and other people, the offender’s rehabilitation or treatment, whether the new name could be used for unlawful purposes, whether the new name change was likely to frustrate the administration of the Act, and whether the new name would be offensive to a victim or the family of a deceased victim.READ MORE: https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/300112945/thirtytwo-childsex-offenders-granted-permission-to-change-their-namesNeighbour concerned about child sex offender’s imminent release from prisonStuff co.nz 22 September 2020A convicted paedophile who shunned rehabilitation is set to return to Dunedin.A sentencing judge described Andrew Lee Gardner’s crimes ”alarming and concerning’’, and noted he was assessed as having an above average risk of sexual offending.It is understood Gardner, after a brief stint in prison, is set to return to Dunedin.No-one was at his home, which is near several schools, on Tuesday afternoon.READ MORE: https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/122844758/neighbour-concerned-about-child-sex-offenders-imminent-release-from-prisonlast_img read more

Champions Trophy pullout unlikely as BCCI meets on Sunday

first_img(REUTERS) – The Indian cricket board (BCCI) will meet on Sunday to consider an additional revenue offer from the game’s world governing body but regardless of what decision they come to, a Champions Trophy pullout by the holders looks unlikely.Unaccustomed to being snubbed at the International Cricket Council (ICC) meetings, the BCCI was outvoted 13-1 last week in its bid to stall a new revenue model which considerably slashes India’s share from global events in the 2015-2023 cycle.Unimpressed by the $293 million forecast, down from the $570 million it would have received under the 2014 arrangement, the BCCI responded by refusing to name the squad for next month’s Champions Trophy before the April 25 deadline.ICC president Shashank Manohar, a former BCCI chief, has tabled an additional $100 million and the India board will discuss the offer at Sunday’s special general body meeting.The operations of the BCCI are currently being supervised by four court-appointed administrators and the head of the committee, Vinod Rai, told Reuters last week that it was “too early” to comment on a possible pullout of Champions Trophy.Another of the quartet, Ramchandra Guha, has since made it clear he wants India to defend the title they won in 2013 at the June 1-18 tournament in England and Wales.“Speaking in my personal capacity, as a cricket fan, I believe the Indian cricket team must absolutely take part in the Champions Trophy,” Guha, a historian, tweeted.“Boycotting or threatening to boycott a prestigious international tournament does not become a great cricketing nation.”Under the Members Participation Agreement for the Champions Trophy, there is no scope for sanctions for missing the deadline for naming squads.last_img read more
