Gang member arrested for threatening to kill an MP

Newshub reports:

A 25-year-old man has been arrested by police for threatening National MP Simeon Brown.

The alleged offender, who Newshub understands is a gang member, was arrested at a Lower Hutt property on Friday afternoon. …

The man is due to appear in the Hutt Valley District Court on Thursday, 13 May, where he will face a charge of threatening to kill the National MP.

Brown told Newshub he’s grateful to the police.

The Pakuranga MP has been outspoken against gangs. He recently demanded the Mongrel Mob stop selling meth and hand in illegal guns during an appearance at Parliament.

Good to see the Police take action. No MP should have to face threats against their life because what they say isn’t to the liking of gang members.
