WELLINGTON (AFP) - New Zealand universities and dorm accommodation providers were told Tuesday (Oct 15) they could face hefty fines following a gruesome case in which a student's decomposing body lay undetected in his room for weeks.

Education Minister Chris Hipkins said the teenager's fate, which emerged last month, showed voluntary standards aimed at caring for students in halls of residence had failed.

He said a mandatory code of practice would come into force in 2021, including fines of NZ$100,000 (S$86,400) for breaches that led to a student's death or serious injury.
