Native Affairs - Raided Again

By Iulia Leilua

A Ruatoki family has been left shaken after the armed offenders squad woke them in the dead of the night, ordered them outside and held them at gunpoint.

While they found nothing, the family say no explanation or apology was given by the police.  The incident has re-traumatised the small Ruatoki community who are not only still grappling with the 2007 terror raids but also another AOS raid in 2012.
