Call to sack officer

The father of one of three girls wrongfully jailed for seven months is happy the police have apologised, but wants the officer he believes responsible removed from the force.

Vini Kavi said Detective Constable Trevor Franklin, the former test cricketer who was in charge of the case, should be dismissed.

His comments followed yesterday's visit from Superintendent Howard Broad, the Auckland police district commander, to the Kavi family's Mt Roskill, Auckland, home to apologise.
