New Zealand police investigate millennium suicide cults

Kyodo/May 25, 1999

Sydney -- Police in New Zealand are investigating the possibility foreign cults could head to the North Island city of Gisborne for millennium suicides, the New Zealand Press Agency reported Tuesday.

The agency quoted Gisborne area controller Detective Senior Sergeant Waata Shepherd as saying the police had heard the suggestions several weeks ago and two staff members were researching and planning for the possibility cults may head to the region to commit suicide.

Shepherd said Interpol was also helping with inquiries, according to the report.

Located on the eastern most point of New Zealand's North Island, Gisborne is considered to be the first city in the world to greet the dawn in 2000.
