E whakapono ana ngā Pirihimana he hononga tā te Mapū Mangarū ki te tukino o Lee Rata

  • Te Tai Tokerau

E whakapono ana ngā Pirihimana i whai wāhi ētahi mema o te Mapū Mangarū ki te tūkino i a Lee Rata i te pō o te tau hou.

Ki tā ngā Pirihimana, i tētahi mārena ngā mema o te Māpū Mangarū pātata atu ki te wāhi i tūkinohia a Rata. 

Ki tā Kaitirotiro Kevin Burke “This was a vicious beating where a number of people have set upon Mr Rata."

E noho huna ana te ingoa o te tangata Kua hāmenetia mo te matenga o Rata. 

I te ata nei nā ētahi whakamana haurapa i mauheretia e ngā Pirihimana ētahi tāngata ki Moerewa mo take kē atu e hāngai atu ki te mahi hoko ngangara, tūkino me te mahi rūpahu. 

Ki tā Burke ka hāere tonu te aruaru a ngā pirihimana tae noa ki te kitenga o te tangata nana nei a Rata i tūkino.

I tū te nehu o Lee Rata i te rā nei.
