From The Panel, 4:55 pm on 30 October 2018

Czech kickboxer Jan Antolik came here on a false passport and was later jailed for importing MDMA into New Zealand. He's had other brushes with the law, the Parole Board found him 'manifestly untruthful'. But the Immigration Minister Iain Lees-Galloway has granted him permanent residency. The PM Jacinda Ardern has found herself defending the decision.
