Paul Khan Whatuira
At the end of last season he returned to New Zealand to see his parents and celebrate a delayed 21 st birthday party. The complainant was an acquaintance who was invited to that party. The party was in the appellant's parents house, but after a time it moved outside the house to an adjoining garage. Whilst the party was still in progress, the complainant burgled the house. He took many precious items belonging to the appellant, including a video camera; his Junior Kiwi representative jersey; and some of his professional rugby league jerseys. The burglary was an extensive one. The police estimate of value is $5,276.00. Quite apart from the
economic value, these items were of course, of enormous emotional value to the appellant.
 As it transpires, the complainant was caught red handed by the appellant's parents actually endeavouring to remove a second haul. He has been charged with burglary. He has pleaded guilty, and he is for sentence on 17 December 2002, in the District Court.
