From all the reports I have seen, he has never shown much remorse at all, and his sexual abuse of children makes him NZ’s worst hypocrite.
He has served six of nine year sentence. Sadly under the law that applied at the time, parole is near automatic at two thirds. I think the Parole Board have turned him down seven times before.,
Remember this is the man who claimed that the sex with one of his victims was consensual:
“The law, as it has been explained to me, seems so different to what the Biblical law and indeed common perceptions are of rape,” he wrote.
“The fact that [the victim] consented is irrelevant.”
If we are lucky he will leave NZ.
