Yet Another Victim of New Zealand Tourism

Posted by feww on January 24, 2008

Murdered in New Zealand in the Prime of Her Life

[Submitted by a guest writer]

Karen Aim

Karen Aim, 26, a Scottish tourist, was found in a pool of blood, caused by a serious head injury, on a street corner in Taupo, New Zealand. She spoke with the responding officers and gave her name. It’s not known whether her life could have been saved had the authorities acted professionally. Karen’s body will be flown to Scotland and then by boat to her home in Orkney Islands.

Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of Karen Aim. Their tragic loss was unnecessary and preventable. New Zealand is culture of extreme violence; NZ Government and the tourism mafia [industry] must be held accountable for each and every incidents of murder, rape, kidnap, assault and aggravated robbery perpetrated by their citizens against the unsuspecting tourists who are lured to the country by false advertising. [See links below.]

CASF Human Rights Team has previously asked the NZ Ministry of Justice and several other ministries for a list of foreigners who have been murdered or ‘accidentally’ killed in New Zealand in the past few years. Unfortunately, the New Zealand authorities declined to provide any information.

According to nztourmaps.com, a New Zealand tourism promotion company, about 779 overseas visitors were killed in New Zealand between 2001 to 2006. [Note: the figure provided may be a gross underestimate, though it still means overseas visitors are 7 times more likely to be killed in New Zealand than in Australia.]
