1. Eight-year-old forced to deliver the final blow that killed her three-year-old brother Moko Rangitoheriri.
The eight-year-old sister of Moko Rangitoheriri who was horrifically beaten to death by his carers, has told her aunt that she was forced to deliver the final blow.
Both siblings were placed in the care of a family friend, while their mother was in an Auckland hospital caring for their sick older brother.
While there, three-year-old Moko was abused by the family friend, Tania Shailer.
His eight-year-old sister (who cannot be named for legal reasons), tried to hide him from the abuse and sneak him water. Each time she attempted to help Moko, she was severely punished by their abuser, Shailer.
On the night of his death, Shailer forced his sister to kick an almost comotose Moko. When the final blow was delivered she was told "It's your fault he's dead. You killed your brother."
According to Stuff.co.nz, the little girl has since said she wishes she had died, too.
2. Sydney student may not have broken the law over $4.6m overdraft
A student who spent a large sum of money accidentally given to her by Westpac may not have broken the law, a magistrate has told a Sydney court.
Christine Jiaxin Lee was arrested while trying to board a flight to Malaysia on Wednesday, four years after a "glitch" in Westpac's system left her able to spend $4.6m of the bank's money. She spent much of that amount on handbags, Fairfax reports.
Fairfax media reports magistrate Lisa Stapleton granted Lee bail on Thursday, saying it appeared Westpac inadvertently gave her an unlimited overdraw facility and so she used it.
Lee, 21, has been charged with dishonestly obtaining financial advantage by deception and knowingly dealing with the proceeds of crime, Fairfax reports.
3. Peter Dutton owes raped refugee a duty of care, court finds
The Federal Court has ruled that Immigration Minister Peter Dutton owes a refugee raped on Nauru a duty of care, and must not force her to terminate her pregnancy in Papua New Guinea where it is neither safe nor legal. The court also found that Dutton owes the young woman a duty of care.
The young African woman, known only as S99, was semi-conscious after suffering a suspected epileptic seizure when she was attacked on Nauru. Despite begging authorities to let her come to Australia to terminate the pregnancy she does not want, Australian authorities instead sent her to Papua New Guinea. She has now spent a month in limbo there, as courts considered her fate.
Justice Mordecai Bromberg of the Federal Court handed down his ruling on Friday, saying the young woman must be considered under the protection of Australian law, despite the fact she lives in Nauru.
Fairfax Media reports that uncertainty still surrounds the woman's fate, however, as the Immigration Department is under no obligation to bring her to Australia for a safe and legal abortion - only to ensure she receives one.
