Fiji killer of
gay New Zealand couple reportedly freed

According to a Fijilive Web site report posted August 1, a Fiji man who was convicted of murdering a gay couple may have been released from a psychiatric hospital. What follows is the text from the Fijilive Web site:

Local authorities and the family of a man who killed a gay New Zealand couple in 2001 are keeping quiet on his supposed release.

Apete Kaisau was to be detained indefinitely, but it is believed he has been released from the St. Giles Psychiatric Hospital in Suva. He was found guilty for the murder of John Scott, the former head of the Fiji Red Cross, and Greg Scrivener in their Suva home. The St. Giles Hospital acting superintendent, Dr. Yvonne Entico, would not verify whether Kaisau has indeed been released, citing hospital policy. Kaisau's father also switched off his mobile phone when asked to verify overseas media reports on his son's purported release.

The commissioner of prisons, Aisea Taoka, was also unavailable for comment.

According to the media report, the Scott and Scrivener families had asked the Fijian authorities to keep them informed about Kaisau but were not told of his release.
