Paparoa Range School Blackball site pupils Ben Maxwell, Alex Muir, Sammie
Hagenaar, Tipene Gibson and Kirsty Fayen after painting their palm prints on
to a tree. Blackball Residents’ Association Trust chairman Paul Maunder will
photograph the image and have it turned into flags to adorn the main road and
the aerial at the turnoff to Blackball, in preparation for May Day. “It will be an
image of solidarity, which is a nice theme for Blackball,” Mr Maunder said.

Freedom sought on
reporting of suicide
advocates have asked Parliament
for greater freedom to report on
suicides, saying New Zealand’s
rules are among the most restrictive
in the world.
As part of reforms of the Coroners
Act, the Government is looking to
loosen the rules around how self-
inflicted deaths can be reported.
Submitters to a select committee
this week said the rules should be
relaxed further than proposed.
At present, no information
about a death which appears to be
self-inflicted can be made public —
unless the coroner agrees — until
the coronial inquiry is completed.
If a coroner decides that a death
is suicide, the only information that
can be made public is the person’s
name, job and address and the fact
that the death was self-inflicted.
Under the proposed reforms, the
media will be able to report a death
as a “suspected suicide” before a
coroner’s inquiry is completed, if
the facts support that conclusion.
The Chief Coroner will be able to
grant an exemption for a suicide to
be reported on if satisfied that the
risk of copycat behaviour is small
and is outweighed by the public
Media Freedom Committee
member Clive Lind said that unlike
the tabloid press overseas, New
Zealand media had generally been
responsible in reporting on suicide.
He said the changes were “a step
for ward” but added that if the facts
clearly showed a death was suicide,
reporters should not have to call it
“suspected”. This was the practice in
most other similar jurisdictions.
He said copycat deaths as a result
of suicide reporting were unlikely,
because young people were more
heavily influenced by social media
than mainstream media. Giving the
media greater freedom to discuss
suicides would counter the effect of
Lawyer Graeme Edgeler said a
coroner’s permission should not
be required to report on suicide,
and infringements should not be a
He recommended that the
regulation of suicide reporting
should be removed from the
Coroners Act and left instead to the
Broadcasting Standards Authority
or the Press Council.

Pair survive Dunedin
A pilot and his passenger had a lucky
escape after their light plane crashed on

Mike Richards said the Cessna 182 was

“Generally the owners that have them
