September 27, 2015 6:12 pm

East Timor’s former president Jose-Ramos Horta is offering to give the Kiribati overstayer Ioane Teitiota a home and find him a job.

The United Nations special representative and East Timor’s former president Jose-Ramos Horta is offering to give the Kiribati overstayer Ioane Teitiota a home and find him a job.

Teitiota was deported from New Zealand last week after his claim to be the first climate change refugee was rejected by the Government.

His wife and three New Zealand-born children will be sent to Kiribati this week.
In a Facebook post, Mr Horta said he did not understand why New Zealand would do such a heartless thing.

He asked his friends to put him in touch with Mr Teitiota, and said he would pay his airfare to Timor-Leste .

Teitiota and his family can stay at his home while he finds him a job and a house, he said.

He said he would be happy to welcome the first ever climate refugee.
