Good news on Arie Smith

Some good news on the Arie Smith case:

Just to reiterate the key point of the message from Arie’s lawyer on the previous page: it looks like an assault by police officers on Arie will be acknowledged and investigated.
It also looks like the police officers responsible were not from New Zealand. That's also good news, and it makes me feel a lot better about the NZ Police - but at the same time it is going to make the investigation more difficult. But I'm hoping that the police will do their job properly on this, investigate thoroughly, and do their utmost to extradite and prosecute those responsible.
