Police officers deny Auckland kidnapping

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 2/11/2016 Sean Martin

Two senior police officers have pleaded not guilty to charges of kidnapping over a mock arrest of a teen in Auckland.

Inspector Hurimoana Dennis, 51, and Sergeant Vaughan Perry, 44 appeared in Auckland District Court where they pleaded not guilty to charges of kidnapping a 17-year-old on May 5, 2015.

Perry faces a second charge of kidnapping over what police say was an incident at Auckland International Airport on the same day.

The pair will stand trial by jury and will appear again in February.
