Inside the chaotic home of Nia Glassie

Big News Blog 19 November 08

Over a year ago Children’s Commissioner Dr Cindy Kiro said she was “keeping her finger on the pulse” of the Glassie case, but would not begin any investigation of her own until the police inquiry and court action were completed.

Well, it’s finished now. Let’s see if she can find her finger. Had she investigated Lisa Kuku several years ago when CYFS took away one of her children after she suffered a head injury, this whole sorry episode may not have happened. Not one of the people who lived in that house who got themselves into relationships are married. None of the adults currently live with their partners. Now, not one of their children live with their mother or their father.
