Immigration to decide on ex-gang member's NZ residency

From Morning Report, 7:17 am on 23 July 2019

The Immigration Minister has been asked to decide whether a former child gang member who helped dispose of a murder victim's body should be allowed to stay in New Zealand.

The 24-year-old Malaysian man fled to New Zealand to escape revenge by his former associates, but could lose the right to protection because of his criminal past.

Gill Bonnett has been looking into the case and joins Corin Dann with the details.
