Aotearoa/NZ: Rangi Kemara free on 4 March

18 January, Indymedia: Parole was granted today for Rangi Kemara who has been serving 2.5 years for convictions on firearms charges.

The Parole Board said it was satisfied Kemara no longer posed a risk to the community.

The full decision and the board’s conditions have not yet been released. He will be released on March 4.

‘We are thrilled that Rangi will be free and our solidarity and love goes out to him and his whanau.’ – October 15th Solidarity

The appeal to the Supreme Court has not yet been granted leave, but a decision is expected within the next couple of weeks. Following that, lawyers will make formal submissions prior to a hearing in Wellington.
