The former president of the Waikato Students’ Union, Denis John Tokunai, appeared in Hamilton District Court earlier this week facing a charge of theft from December.
It is alleged he stole a laptop worth $400, a smartphone worth $700, as well as keys and a swipecard worth $55 – all the property of the students’ union.
Tokunai is being considered for diversion and will reappear in court in July.
He was ordered to surrender his passport.
Noting the charges have not been proven yet (but talk of diversion suggests they are not contested), I point out Mr Tokunai submitted against the VSM bill, citing all the things which will be lost if there is no WSU. I guess that includes a laptop and a smartphone!
