He was sighted by police in the Wiri area this afternoon, and was taken into custody following a short foot pursuit.

Police issued a statement saying Hanara will face a charge of escaping from lawful custody.

He will appear in the Manukau Youth Court on Friday July 10. 

Hanara was sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of murdering a man in 2018 when he was only 14 years old.

Congratulations to the Police. Great effort with a great outcome. Sad a young life has turned out like this but necessary for this action to be taken.
