A New Zealand journalist stranded in Afghanistan due to PM Jacinda Ardern's harsh Covid restrictions was forced to turn to one of the world's most repressive regimes for help.

Charlotte Bellis found out that she was pregnant in September and has since been trying to return to her home country, to no avail.

According to the Daily Mail, "she has submitted 59 documents to New Zealand officials in Afghanistan in an attempt to secure an emergency return home, but her bid was turned down and led her to turn to the Taliban, one of the world's most oppressive regimes, for sympathy."

Bellis stated in an impassioned appeal to her own government, "To the NZ Government, I ask what do you want me to do?"

"I have done nothing wrong I got pregnant and I am a New Zealander," Bellis went on, pointing out the injustice of her situation.

"At what point did we get so bogged down in these rules we've come up with that we can't see that she's a Kiwi in need of help and she needs to come home?"

The New Zealand regime has not only completely locked the country down again as of Aug 2021, it has also delayed elections, ostensibly due to the pandemic. All of this is despite the fact that the country to date has only reported a mere 52 deaths from COVID 19.

Ironically, Bellis is in Afghanistan reporting on topics such as woman's rights issues, which is known to be a touchy subject for the Taliban.
