    No parole for a gang member who blackmailed a Dunedin worker for up to quarter of a million-dollars

    No parole for a gang member who blackmailed a Dunedin worker for up to quarter of a million-dollars


    33-year-old Muru Muru Taana-Andrews was jailed for just over four-years on a slew of charges last year, including fleecing the retail worker.

    Taana-Andrews approached his victim in late 2016, claiming he had a compromising photograph of the man and a young girl from the company's CCTV system and said gang leadership would take violent action if they found out.

    Parole Board chairman, Sir Ron Young, says Taana-Andrews has behaved well in prison - but, despite that, denied parole.
