Does the Police 'Wanted Persons' page seek to incriminate, without trial, in the eyes of the public?
Police yesterday launched the page which contains the faces and names of those wanted in Wellington and the Eastern District. The whole of New Zealand is due to follow in around two months.
Only urgent cases and those which cannot be reached by other means will feature on the site. Police have praised the tool as another way of bringing justice to offenders.
Michael Bott, chairman of the Council for Civil Liberties told Michael Laws that the list sensationalises the crimes these people are accused of and implies they are all dangerous, when many of them are wanted only for petty crimes.
Is this a breach of civil liberties or are the Police bang on to publicise their most wanted?
This could also be of interest...
