He was in fact a second striker – the ones whom Labour and Greens changed the law for, so that for their third strike they wouldn't serve the maximum sentence with parole.
His 2018 Appeal Court decision states he has at least 15 offences since he was deported here in 2012. Three of them for violence. As usual, he did his second strike while on parole.
Recidivists like Wipa should not be given parole. It should be a rare privilege, not a right.
i look forward to the law being reinstated.
