I Want My Wife, Girl Back: Man

The father of the six-year-old Fijian girl sexually violated in New Zealand and later deported wants his wife and daughter returned.

The Auckland-based dad has appealed to the New Zealand Government to bring his family back.

Speaking from New Zealand, the distraught father, who holds a New Zealand passport said the past month had been difficult. “Since my wife and children left, I’ve never slept in my room, but in the lounge. This big house is empty and I really need them.”

He said thoughts about what his young daughter went through often left him feeling like an emotional wreck.

Last month her daughter and his wife were kicked out of New Zealand. The Immigration and Protection Tribunal had turned down an appeal after their residency application was rejected.

Immigration advisor and former Minister of Immigration Tuariki Delamere who has been helping the family has described the decision to deport the six-year-old as a “monumental wrong.”
