    Indians exploiting their own people is SHAMEFUL,

    By Gavin McLean
    I am supporting Indian students who I consider Family who are victims  being deported because of the corrupt Immigration consultants in India. I am Maori , native to NZ. And I need to express my concerns and frustration of both NZ Immigration and Indian Govt for not taking this seriously.Students have details and names of their false Indian consultant and I think their names should be made public and charged by the courts. NZ should not be a haven for Indian corruption. Keep NZ PURE !
