Hon Amy Adams, in Committee, to move the following amendments:
In the heading to clause 14, delete
“(When designated coroner has exclusive right to custody of body)” (page 14, lines 17 and 18).
In clause 14, after new section 19 (page 14, after line 31), insert:
19A Police responsible for co-ordinating extraction of body
This section applies to a body if—
the responsible coroner has an exclusive right to custody of the body; and
the body is in a location from which it can be extracted only with extraordinary effort or the use of special resources.
The New Zealand Police is responsible, on behalf of the coroner, for co-ordinating the extraction of the body from that location.
In clause 38, replace new section 71(1) (page 25, lines 29 and 30) with:
This section applies in respect of a death if—
the death occurred in New Zealand or on or from an aircraft or a ship specified in section 14(1); and
the death was self-inflicted or there is reasonable cause to suspect that the death was self-inflicted.
