Tupe loses prison privileges
By NEIL REID
Prison privileges and preparation
for parole have been withdrawn
from the getaway driver in William
Bell's RSA attack after he was
found using drugs in jail.
Darnell Kere Tupe, 31, was jailed
for 12 years on three charges of
manslaughter following the raid on
the Mt Wellington-Panmure RSA in
Tupe was being housed in a self-
care unit and on the release to work
programme run by the Corrections
Department, but these rights have
been revoked. He appeared before
the parole board on October 14 in
a bid for release from prison, but
in a written decision the board
said he failed a drugs test in Sept-
He has been well behaved in the
structured institutional environ-
ment of the prison but

Bell was found guilty on three
murder charges and the attempted
murder of Couch and is unable to
seek parole until December 2031.

the pair hatched a robbery plot.

minutes while Bell went in with a

It said his offending issues

violence, choice of peers''.
He has now been placed on a drug

Tupe's statutory release date is
December 4, 2013.
He cannot be released before then

Unless the board is persuaded he
understands or can be brought to
understand what brought him to
offend, and also understands the
seriousness of his offending and the
extent to which it will not be
tolerated by a community entitled
to protect itself, and unless he takes
effective steps to deal with that or
show how he intends to do so safely
in the future, there is a good reason
to suppose he may offend again in
familiar ways,'' the report said.

Save the buildings
Time is running out to save the
historical buildings at 8-20 Turua
St, St Heliers village. Tenants
have been given notice to vacate.
Last Thursday a person
photographing the little, late 19th
century cottage was asked why.
He said he knew from mates who
are in the demolition business,
that it was to be destroyed.
Efforts are being made to find
the history of each building.
If you have any information send
it to the email address below, or
take it to the librarian at St
Heliers library, or call me on
Already the response from the
email address shows a groundswell
of opinion against the demolition.
You need to go and see this original
row of buildings in St Heliers
before it is too late.
While the new suburb of
Stonefields is taking shape
nicely, there is one anomaly in
the planning which seems to
have escaped common sense; that
is the naming of roads. Surely
these should be kept to those
easily spelt, spoken and readable
(like the park names -- Stone's
Throw and Lava Flow).
Looks like some of the most
awkward and unpronouncable
ones have been chosen -- I reckon
at least a dozen of these will
generate headaches, annoyance,
puzzled responses and downright
irritation when given as destina-
tions to suppliers, postal authori-
ties, taxi drivers, deliverymen
and all those lacking diplomas in
spelling. Some of the ones that
surprised me include Styak St,
Fynes Ave, Tauomo Cres, Briody
Tce, Reipae St and Tephra
Boulevard. Obscurity and
mystery in dollops. I hope the
new flat screen receivers arrive
. eventually. Ted Hughes
