WHAT COOL NEWS. FROM THE GRANNY HERALD……….
Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull says he is “completely at a loss” after police yesterday ruled out enforcing trespass notices that would have forced Occupy Dunedin protesters to quit their Octagon encampment.
Dunedin-Clutha area commander Inspector Greg Sparrow issued a brief statement late yesterday, confirming police would not act on the trespass notices issued to the protesters by council staff last week.
Police had been considering their legal position for the past week, but Insp Sparrow yesterday concluded the trespass notices did not meet “the test of balancing the rights and freedoms of all parties”.
Police were yet to see any action by the protesters “that would justify police intervention”, but would continue to monitor the situation, he said.
