THE NEW ZEALAND GOVERNMENT IS DETERMINED TO SEE THE KILLERS OF TARANAKI BORN PHOTOGRAPHER BROUGHT TO JUSTICE...

The thirty three year old New Zealand born photographer, Trent Keegan, was found after being robbed, beaten to death and left in a ditch in Nairobi,Kenya in May 2008.

Two local men were charged with assaulting and robbing Mr Keegan, but were later acquitted. Nobody has yet been charged with the New Zealander's murder.

The NZ Foreign Affairs Minister, Murray McCully told the media recently that Foreign Affairs were seeking further information from Kenyan authorities in regards to the case, and whether an appeal would be lodged and further investigations undertaken.

His sister, Nikki McKinnon, has moved back to New Zealand with her Australian cameraman husband to live. She wants to support her parents who reside in New Plymouth.

The family are disappointed and feel the NZ government could be doing much more than they have so far. They feel the government has failed to honour its promise to investigate the matter further.

This sort of thing, the murder of one country's citizen or another, going unresolved is occurring more often, so much so you wonder why something is not done about it.

The family claims the NZ Govt has been lax, but I suspect the local authorities are not in any hurry to solve the case. Corruption and all that!

Corruption, now there is a dirty word for you, especially where justice should be a priority.

Will update when I learn just what has happened lately.
