Family Violence link to death of migrant woman

December 03, 2013 at 3:25 PM

Two cases in the past week gives us a snapshot of the adverse situations including family violence problems in the Asian or migrant communities in New Zealand. 

Ms Sarwan Lata and Ms Mei Fan both died in violent stabbings. In Lata's case she was trying to get a protection order against her alleged killer, her husband in Newlands Wellington on Tuesday.  

Both cases depict the vulnerabilities these women face in their new country New Zealand, and highlight the need for culturally appropriate and competent services and workforce that can give them timely, sound and safe advice.
