Recidivist offender returned to Tonga

 

A joint effort between government and non-government entities has seen the return to Tonga of a recidivist offender.

The inter-agency effort involving the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Immigration (MFAI), the Ministry of Corrections, Cook Islands Police, non-profit organisation Second Chance Support Group, and legal advisor Mark Short enabled the removal of the repeat offender last week escorted by an MFAI Immigration Officer.
