Corrections to appeal after losing bid to supervise child sex offender with disturbed past settled in Wellington
Alinizi fled Iraq as a child with family, where he had witnessed his uncle kill his mother during an argument, a judgment released this week said.
He had also been exposed to “graphic and sadistic violence” by his father and male relatives growing up, and was molested by one of them.
Alinizi’s father and stepmother split after arriving in New Zealand due to his father’s violence and she took him and his siblings into refuge.
Alinizi was shuffled around foster homes for most of his adolescence.
In 2005, Alinizi, then aged 21, was found guilty of raping and kidnapping a 15-year-old girl he had been in a relationship with.
He had chased her down the road after she left the house and forced her to return to his bedroom, where he raped her.
Alinizi admitted regularly abusing alcohol, cannabis and methamphetamine during that period, and was sexually compulsive, claiming a large number of partners and sex on a daily basis.
