New Zealand's first MP Shane Jones helped dissolve a domestic violence event.
NZ First MP Shane Jones and his wife arrested and allegedly disrupted violent violence at Wellington, after witnessing a swinging car.
The couple drove home to Veredon on Saturday, when Dot Jones spotted the car behind them.
"My wife looked in the mirror and saw that something was wrong, we went out and got involved," said Jones Stuff.
Jones said he had no choice but to intervene and said the situation was "dissipating."
"She [the victim] Was completely out of state and very emotionally confused. "
Jacinda Ardern said eliminating domestic violence and sexual violence was the biggest opportunity New Zealand had to improve the welfare of people.
"[With] These issues of problems, I kind of guy's front, but they can be threatening to be inside, "said Jones.
He said that there was "obvious fracas", but no physical threats of violence were made towards him.
The wife of Jones, who recognized the incident, said: "I saw the car behind us swaying and getting very close to our car, I saw a lot of hands beating each other," Dot said.
When Jones and Dot and their son went to the car, the man inside shouted and restrained the woman, Dot said.
Dot asked the woman several times if she wanted to get out of the car but the man did not let her go although the woman said "Let me go," she said.
"Shane tried to calm her down, and I was very worried about her," Dot said.
"I was a little off but I told her it was a subject before?"
The woman had clear marks on her neck and finally pulled out the car, Dot said.
Police arrived minutes later, after another member reported the incident.
Dot said she was not suffering from physical or verbal abuse from men.
"When I see something like that it bothers me … and I just hope she's okay today," Dot said.
A police spokeswoman confirmed that the police received a report of a family injury incident at 3:40 on Saturday, followed by a police safety order (PSO).
The PSO is issued when the police have reasonable grounds to believe that domestic violence has occurred or may occur.
Its purpose is to protect people at risk from violence, harassment or intimidation, and the person issued with the PSO must clear the address immediately.
P.S. Can last up to five days.
Jones said it was "incredibly ironic" and the incident happened just the day before the government announced $ 320 million in funding for domestic violence prevention and sexual support.
"It is ironic that this happened and then the government announced the money against violence.
"But these events can happen anywhere," said Jones.
"The declaration should have real significance on the ground and it is embarrassing to involve yourself in cases where there are internal conflicts … Money alone is not going to solve the problem," he said.
About one million New Zealanders are affected by family violence and sexual violence every year, including nearly 300,000 children.
Last week, Arden said that the documentation of domestic violence in New Zealand was "shocking" and "shocking" and that handling the issue was a top priority for the government.
