Why was he still on bail?

Vilami Latu is believed to have killed his estranged partner and himself last week. She should still be alive.

The timeline of events shows it was preventable.

  • Partner often seen by neighbours with black eyes
  • Latu often seen wondering streets with a machete
  • Police and other agencies notified by April 2020
  • Nov 2020 – shoved a young child from a moving car. Assaulted neighbour who called the Police. Given bail to brother’s place in Pukekohe.
  • Jan/Feb 2021 – breached bail conditions by travelling to partner’s house. Despite that bail not rescinded
  • Mar 2021 – killed partner

He shouldn’t have been given bail in the first place and he shouldn’t have kept bail after he breached it. Someone who will throw a kid out of a moving car is an obvious danger.
