To be attributed to Detective Inspector Bruce Scott, Waitemata Police
Our thoughts and wishes are with the Chen family, who have been through an experience that no family should have to endure. We wish to acknowledge the strength and dignity shown by Cissy's family since she went missing in November 2012.
The role of Police is to gather all the available evidence and present it to the court. In general, Police do not pass judgement on court outcomes and this case is no exception.
Police will not be reinvestigating the case and are not looking for anyone else in relation to Ms Chen's death.
Media please note Police will not be doing any interviews in relation to this statement.
