This is about an appropriate sentence which reflects the gravity of the crime.”READ MORE: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=4&objectid=11719370Police to appeal Losi Filipo’s discharge without convictionNewsTalk ZB 29 September 2016Police are to appeal the discharge without conviction of Losi Filipo.Filipo, 18, was last month discharged without conviction for an attack that occurred in central Wellington in October 2015.The confirmation of an appeal was also applauded by Bob McCoskrie, director of the conservative lobby group Family First NZ.“This offender-friendly sentence sent a dangerous message that we don’t value the protection of victims and the safety of the public in a case that involved significant violence towards both males and females,” he said.“This is not about revenge as some will suggest.
