Wi Huata loses bid for home detention

By Jon Stokes

Convicted fraudster Wi Huata has begun a two-year sentence after being denied home detention.

However, 44-year-old Huata, husband of former Act MP Donna Awatere Huata, who is also behind bars after being convicted of fraud, could soon be out on bail after instructing his lawyer to appeal his conviction.

Last month the pair were found guilty of stealing tens of thousands of dollars from the Government-funded Pipi Foundation, which Awatere Huata set up in 1999 to help under-privileged Maori children in literacy and social skills.

Ha...justice is served and the bully-boy gets his dish...cold.

UN drops the ball...again

THE United Nations withheld some of the most damaging allegations against Syria in its report on the murder of Rafik Hariri, the former Lebanese Prime Minister, it emerged yesterday.

The names of the brother of Bashar al-Assad, President of Syria, and other members of his inner circle, were dropped from the report that was sent to the Security Council.

The confidential changes were revealed by an extraordinary computer gaffe because an electronic version distributed by UN officials on Thursday night allowed recipients to track editing changes.

Past Impact and Future Prospects

Anyone who wishes to cope with the future should travel back in imagination a single lifetime . . . and ask himself just how much of today’s technology would be, not merely incredible, but incomprehensible to the keenest scientific brains of that time.

Bounty hunter wanted

Prime Minister John Howard warned Australia would feel a "deep and lasting anger" if Indonesia allowed Abu Bakar Bashir another reduction in his 30-month jail term.

Bashir, the spiritual leader of terror group Jemaah Islamiah, could get an automatic remission early next month, as part of commemorations for the holiday which marks the end of Ramadan.

JI is believed to be responsible for the latest Bali bombings which killed 22 people including four Australians.

Australia will again protest to Indonesia about the possible remission after telling Indonesia in August that it objected to the four-and-a-half month cut to Bashir's two and a half year jail sentence.
