2:25 NZ Crimes: The 'Pamper Party' case

In October 2016, a group of women gathered in West Auckland for what was supposed to be a fun social event – a chance to do their nails, catch up with friends, and have a few drinks.

But the party took a bizarre and violent turn, when Anna Browne stabbed mother-of-two Carly Stewart to death.

The case became known as the ‘pamper party’ stabbing.

Browne was found guilty of murder in 2017 and sentenced to life imprisonment, with a minimum non-parole period of 12 years.

Defence lawyer, Marie Dyhrberg QC, represented Browne and spoke to us about the case.

3:27 History of liberty in a lockdown 

New Zealand has changed dramatically in a week in response to Covid-19. Fundamental rights and liberties have been curtailed to assist in suppressing the virus.

From a legal history perspective, this is similar to what New Zealand experienced in World Wars One and Two and during the 1951 Waterfront Dispute. It is unclear how long these measures will be necessary. The government is now taking the cautious approach with a nationwide lockdown.
