Government plans child sex offender register:

New Zealand's first register of child sex offenders is to be set-up - with the Government saying currently such people can "disappear into communities".

Police and the Corrections Department will run the register, which will be established under legislation introduced to Parliament today.



Child deaths everyones problem:

A Taupo boy is the latest New Zealand child to die a violent death, in a series of incidents which have put the spotlight on the alarmingly high number of children thought to be at risk of violence.



Concern over proposed changes to welfare payments:

A $25 increase in welfare payments will be cancelled out by new obligations for parents to return to work sooner and for longer hours, advocacy groups say.

The benefit changes are the centrepiece of National's Budget, and are being considered by a Parliamentary committee.



Hell and back for domestic violence victim:

A woman who was raped and beaten during their relationship went to "hell and back" , a judge says.

Wayne Anthony Jonathan Houpapa, 31, appeared for sentence on 12 charges before Judge Michael Crosbie in the Dunedin District Court on Tuesday.

On those charges, which included two of sexual violation by rape, he was sentenced to 14 years and six months' jail.
