Kiwi jailed for incest deported back to NZ

A NEW Zealand man who has been sentenced to more than eight years jail on incest and sex charges will be deported back to his homeland once his jail term expires.

The man, who has name suppression, pleaded guilty in Melbourne to the charges against his daughter, who was aged under 16, Radio New Zealand reported.

His mother, siblings, fiancee and another daughter all live in Australia.

The man, in his 40s, had been living in Australia for 19 years but will be deported back to New Zealand despite his family not living there.

A tribunal upheld a decision to revoke his visa despite finding he has a relatively low chance of reoffending.
