Phyllis Tarawhiti

Dear Hutt NZ, I am trying to contact a resident of the Hutt
Valley – Phyllis Tarawhiti. She returned to New Zealand in 2008
after spending 11 years in the notorious Bangkok Hilton jail. The
following link takes you to an article on her story
http://www.stuff.co.nz/249411. The reason I would like to contact
her is that Raw Television, the television production company I
work for in London produce a National Geographic programme called
Locked Up Abroad. The show has been running for 6 series. Each
episode tells the cautionary tale of someone who has lost their
freedom through bad judgement or bad luck in a country far from
their home. I am struggling to make contact with her at the moment
but do know that she lives in the Hutt Valley – I am aware also
that this is a very large area – could you recommend any local
newspapers or organisations I could get in touch in order to find
her. If her story ends up being used on one of our programmes a
small finder’s fee could be arranged. The website for the series
has clips of past shows.

Please let me know if you would like anymore information. I look
forward to hearing from you. Many thanks Julia Julia Nottingham
