Watch: Aussie journalist says new documents show NZ media and government lied over visa denial

Avi Yemini explained new documents released in the case.

In August Yemini was blocked from entering New Zealand. The journalist was told this was because of a prior conviction for domestic violence. Yemini was planning to cover the Freedoms & Rights Coalition protest at parliament.

Yemini’s summary conviction did not meet the threshold for denial of entry.

‘But that didn’t stop the mainstream media from regurgitating their lie,’ said Yemini.

‘Not even one correction, not even after an INTERPOL memo link proving New Zealand Police trying to stop me from entering even before they knew about my previous minor conviction.

‘And not a correction after the Freedom of Information Request revealed an internal communication where their real fear was written down in black and white – ‘my propensity to agitate and incite people with opposing views.’

‘But unlike the mainstream media fake news, an alternative news source in New Zealand (the BFD) has been hunting for the truth, and this week they received another 285 pages of shocking internal communications.’

‘The first thing we’ve suspected from the beginning but had no proof until now, the whole saga all started with a defamatory and baseless smear email from a New Zealand Herald reporter Akula Sharma.’

An email from Sharma to Immigration New Zealand claimed Yemini had ‘a serious conviction for assault on a person in a family relationship and more domestic violence convictions.’

This was ‘complete and utter fake news,’ said Yemini. ‘My conviction is for a summary offence, which by definition is not a serious conviction, and nor do I have more domestic violence offences or convictions.’

‘Those lies were the catalyst for everything that ensued.’

The reporter for the Canadian-based Rebel News media organisation confirmed he plans to come to New Zealand next year to pursue court action against ‘corrupt officials.’

  1. Akula Sharma. I see this person is originally from overseas. Another one of these people who leave their home county they find won’t tolerate them and then try and dictate to their new country what should or shouldn’t be tolerated. They are nothing but a trouble maker and the one guilty of intolerance. Unfortunately the New Zealand herald has given them a voice.
