The Operation Clover - Investigation Overview released by police on the Roast Busters sex investigation case raises more questions than it answers, says New Zealand First.

"Central to the issue is that in a country that prides itself on a strong judicial system why are we unable to provide these young women with any justice?" says Deputy Leader and Spokesperson for Women Tracey Martin.

"There were failings right from the moment this case first gained notoriety. The fact that at least two of the alleged perpetrators had been participating in this behaviour for over two years without any repercussions goes to the depth of the problem in our society.

"Too often complaints from women who have suffered are taken lightly. This case shows there is a great deal of improvement needed.

"It is now time for everyone involved to look closely at their roles and ensure systems we expect to protect us meet our expectations and give a sense of confidence to those who come forward with complaints."
