Cold-blooded murderer who strangled his girlfriend to death with an iron cord before murdering her daughter (3) and burying them at a bus stop is deported – for drink-driving
- An immigration tribunal in New Zealand has determined that double murderers are deported
- He cannot be deported for the murders that took place before resident status
- However, the tribunal determined that the Fijian could be deported for drink-driving
A double murderer who strangled his ex-partner with an iron cord and smothered her three-year-old daughter with a pillow is deported from New Zealand for drink-driving.
Fiji’s 46-year-old Kamal Reddy committed the horrific murders in 2006, but was not charged with the murders until 2014 when the bodies were found buried near an Auckland bus station.
Reddy became the prime suspect in the investigation after the pair was reported missing in 2013.
But with little evidence, cold case investigators set up an extensive operation to obtain a confession.
Undercover agents pretended to be organized crime figures and approached Reddy to join their fake syndicate.
In 2014, Reddy unconsciously led them to the bodies of Pakeeza Yusuf and her daughter Jojo.
Pakeeza Yusuf was strangled with an iron cord and her three-year-old daughter Jojo was smothered with a pillow in 2006 by Kamal Reddy
He was convicted of troubling crimes in 2016 and sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of 21 years of parole.
But it would be his report on drunk driving that will see him deported after his release.
The murders took place before a mechanic Reddy, a skilled migrant, was admitted to New Zealand.
That meant he couldn’t be deported for the crimes.
But the Immigration and Protection Tribunal ruled that between 2007 and 2013 Reddy could be deported for three drink-driving convictions and three other driving convictions while disqualified, The New Zealand Herald reported.
Under New Zealand migration law, any criminal conviction in the first five years of obtaining a permanent residence permit may result in the residence permit being revoked.
Reddy argued that he could remain in the country in 2036 if he is eligible for parole in 2036 because his adult son lives in New Zealand.
He also told the tribunal that he is appealing his murder convictions to the Supreme Court.
The judge who followed the murder case said that Jojo’s murder was particularly insensitive. “She was a sleeping three-year-old and you deliberately destroyed her life.”
But the tribunal ruled that “there were no exceptional humanitarian circumstances” that should allow Redstart to remain.
The tribunal read the notes of the judge during the proceedings
“The murder of [Jojo] was made by your own confession in an attempt to prevent the murder of her mother and your involvement in it, it is discovered, ” RNZ reported.
“It was an act of extraordinary insensitivity … she was a sleeping three-year-old and you deliberately destroyed her life.
“You were happy to keep the bodies in your car for a day and a half. In the end, you sent them to a funeral that you were sure would never be found, and indeed your calculation was correct.
“They would never have been found except for the police undercover operation.”
