Child killer's parole hearing not going ahead today

The parole hearing for New Zealand's youngest killer is not going ahead today.

Bailey Junior Kurariki, who was 12 when he and five other young people killed south Auckland pizza delivery man Michael Choy in September 2001, was expected to come before the parole board today.

But parole board spokeswoman Sonja de Friez said the board would not be hearing Kurariki's application for release just yet.

"I can't say exactly when it will be but it will not be today," Ms de Friez said.

"I'm not even sure that it will be this week, but it should be within two weeks."
