Liam Reid has lost his battle to have an injunction put in place on a documentary about his case.

Convicted murderer and rapist Liam Reid has failed to stop a documentary being made about his high profile crimes. 

Last year, Reid launched a legal battle against South Pacific Pictures who produce television show Forensic NZ. South Pacific Pictures had planned to devote an episode of Forensic NZ to Reid’s case, which would air in 2018 on Prime. 

Reid wanted to have an injunction granted out of fear the documentary would affect his fair trial rights.

Kasur rapist-murderer sentenced to death in Pakistan

A Pakistani serial killer convicted of rape and murder of a seven-year-old girl Zainab Ansari has been sentenced to death, prosecutors say.

The trial was held in the eastern city Lahore by the country’s special anti-terrorism court on Saturday in the presence of the killer, Mohammad Imran Ali.

Zainab was found dead in a rubbish dump on January 9 in Kasur district near Lahore, in Punjab province, several days after her disappearance.

Imran was arrested two weeks after he committed the crime that ignited nationwide protests.

“I am very thankful to the chief justice; he treated Zainab like his own daughter,” Zainab’s father Amin Ansari told Al Jazeera.

Imran Ali is sentenced to death on four counts but Zainab’s mother deems this as insufficient for the crimes he committed.

“I want him hanged where he threw Zainab’s body. And he should be stoned. Hanging him is just ordinary for him,” Nusrat Amin told Al

Murderer/rapist Liam Reid battles to block his story on Forensics NZ …

Murderer and rapist Liam Reid is fighting to stop the public from seeing a TV show that details how he carried out his crimes. 

Reid is serving a minimum 23-year sentence for the 2007 rape and murder of Christchurch woman Emma Agnew, and the rape and attempted murder of a 21-year-old student in Dunedin days later.

He was in the High Court at Auckland on Wednesday, seeking an injunction against South Pacific Pictures, which has produced a factual TV show about Reid’s crimes as part of a series called Forensics NZ. 

Reid’s lawyer, Charl Hirschfield, told the court that if the show airs on television, it could affect Reid’s right to a fair re-trial, should one be called. 

Simon Mount QC, representing South Pacific Pictures, argued that sub

‘Vegans call me murderer and rapist’ – BBC News – BBC.com

Media captionFarmers ‘sent death threats by vegan activists’

Veganism has been described as the fastest growing lifestyle movement. For some concern about animal welfare leads them to actively campaign against all forms of the meat industry. But are some of those activists taking it too far?

“When you’re being called murderers and rapists, that is overstepping the mark, for fairly obvious reasons,” says Alison Waugh, a trainee farmer in Northumberland.

She has received death threats due to her work and told the Victoria Derbyshire programme other farmers are feeling threatened.

“Which is quite ironic from people that want peace for animals, but then they tell you, ‘I hope you and your family go die in a hole for what you do,'” she says.

“You’ve got people storming the meat mart, spraying
