He pire hōu ka whakamauru i te mamae ki ngā whānau o te hunga kua kōhurutia

Tema Hemi

Ka mauru ake ai te mamae o ngā whānau he uri ō rātou kua kōhurutia e ngaro tonu ana, ki te whakamanatia he pire ā mema hōu ki rō Pāremata i tēnei tau. 

Ko te Pire Huna Tūpāpaku Pārurenga, he pire ā mema nā te Mema Pāremata o Kirikiriroa ki te Uru, nā Tim Macindoe. Ko tā te pire e tūtohu nei, kia kaua e whai tukuhere te mauhere kōhuru tangata ki te kore ia e whāki i te wāhi e takoto ana ngā kōiwi o tana pārurenga. 

Inā te pākatokato ki ngā whānau ka kore e āhei ki te poroporoāki i o rātou mate, e ai ki te hunga tautoko. 

"Ka kore pea te tira e hoki mai ki tōna ūkaipō, ka tū mokemoke tonu nē rā," te kī a tētahi ki Te Ao. Nā tētahi anō te kōrero, "It would be quiet traumatic. Family do need remains for closure, that's a bit of a cultural thing you know."

"I believe we should allow for whānau to have a time to mourn over their mate," te whakautu hoki a tētahi atu. 

"For families that are missing somebody or someone's gone missing, I could imagine that would be quiet heart-breaking," te kī a tētahi atu.

Mā tēnei pire, ka herea te Poari Tukuhere i roto i āna whiriwhiringa tukuhere, kia whai whakaarohia te korenga o te mauhere e whāki i te takotoranga o ngā tūpāpaku o ō rātou pārurenga.  

E ai ki te māngai o Nāhinara, ki a Chris Penk, "It's really responding to a situation we've had a number of times in New Zealand and overseas, we've seen it as well. Also looking to law changes in the UK, for example, where we've got victim's families where there's been a homicide and the body hasn't been revealed." 

He hua te pire nei i te kaupapa here a Nāhinara e whakaū ana, kia noho mātāmua ai ngā pārurenga ki roto i te pūnaha ture. 

"It's 100% important that victims are at the centre of the criminal justice system, that's because they're involved in a way that is no fault of their own. It's not their doing that they've been involved and similarly their families of course," tā Penk. 

I tēnei wa e manawanui ana te marea o Aotearoa i tēnei pire.  

"It's the same in Australia, I recall that sort of thing being discussed because I've been living over there for several years, and I thought it was fair and reasonable," tā tētahi ki Te Ao.

"I think that it's not a bad idea in terms of incentivising the perpetrator to identify the location of bodies," te kī a tētahi atu.  

Hei tā Penk, "A few people will be affected by it so it's actually about doing the right thing, rather than having something that has wide appeal or application."

He māmā noa te whakatau i te kaupapa e ai ki a Penk, ā e matapaetia ana ka kore tētahi e tuku wero ki te pire nei me te manako nui ia ka uru ki roto i te whare pāremata hei ngā marama e tū mai nei.
