A former immigration advisor who was jailed for acting without a licence has asked for new complaints against him to be reconsidered because he couldn't respond while in prison.
Hakaoro Hakaoro was jailed in January 2014 for 20 months after admitting charges brought by the Immigration Advisers Authority.He had already been disciplined seven times, including for making a woman his slave and offering to get another woman pregnant to help her gain residency.
Hakaoro now faces six more complaints before the Immigration Advisers Disciplinary Tribunal.He has applied to have the six complaints referred back to the Immigration Advisers Authority, saying he did not have the opportunity to respond.
The registrar said Hakaoro was served all of the relevant documents, and had a reasonable time to respond.In four decisions made on March 12, the tribunal agreed he had ample time to respond to each of the complaints.
The matters would be dealt with by the tribunal on the papers.Decisions on the remaining two complaints have not been published.In previous cases, Hakaoro was found to have told a client he would get her pregnant, as having a child was the fastest way to get a work permit.
The tribunal upheld a complaint from the woman, who refused repeated requests from Hakaoro to go to a motel and have sex to get her pregnant.In another case, a woman who was in New Zealand illegally and under financial stress agreed to be his servant in July 2011.
She was exploited and expected to undertake inappropriate tasks including heavy lifting and massaging Hakaoro's wife in the early hours of the morning.He also told her he would get her a residence permit if she would have sex with him.
