Evans, Malcolm, 1945- :'Show me your wallet!' 'Show me your passport!' New Zealand Herald, 13 May 2003.

Reference Number: DX-002-257

In the first of these two scenes a happy, slim, and energetic Tuvaluan child arrives in New Zealand and is greeted by a fat man offering him giant sweets and wanting to take his money. In the second a miserly skinny doctor clutches on to dialasis equipment and asks for a passport, as the same child, who is now fat and collapsed on the floor, feebly beckons for treatment with one finger. Refers to a Tuvalu man who created an ethical dilemma for doctors when legislation stipulated they must stop treating the man as his immigration status was not resolved, yet if they did cease dyalisis he would die.
