Double-killer Graeme Burton was stabbed more than 40 times in the attack.
A prisoner has had three years and nine months added to his sentence after taking part in a shank attack on one of the country’s most notorious murderers, Graeme Burton.
Te Ariki Poulgrain appeared at the High Court in Auckland on Thursday after earlier admitting a charge of wounding Burton with intent to injure inside the country’s maximum security prison at Paremoremo.
He had been serving a sentence of three years in prison for burglaries when he took part in the attack.
Two other inmates, Tama Tapine and convicted killer Siuaki Lisiate, have also admitted charges relating to their part in the attack. It resulted in Burton being stabbed more than 40 times and suffering serious injuries.

Burton is serving a life sentence with a minimum non-parole period of 26 years for shooting Wainuiomata truck driver Karl Kuchenbecker dead in Lower Hutt in 2007. He has more than 100 convictions to his name.
When he murdered Kuchenbecker he was out on parole, having already served a sentence of 14 years for stabbing a man to death in 1992.
Burton also shot two mountain bikers who arrived on the scene a short time later, hitting one in the elbow, then shot at two other bikers a short time later.
When Burton was finally confronted by police, he refused to surrender and was shot in the leg. It was later amputated.
The prison assault happened in May 2018. Burton had his prosthetic leg on and was walking outside the cells when he was punched in the face by Tapine.
The blow caused Burton to fall over. Poulgrain and gang member Lisiate ran towards Burton before Lisiate took out two improvised knives, known as shanks, that he had hidden in his clothing.
Court documents said Lisiate went for Burton’s head and face and also kicked at him as he lay on the ground.
Lisiate stabbed Burton 40 times.
Poulgrain also had a shank and landed at least seven blows.
The court document said Lisiate only stopped when guards entered the area and threatened to use their pepper spray.
Burton was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries.
He had a large stab wound to his right eye, stab wounds to his arms and left hand and superficial cuts to his face and head.
Burton underwent surgery and had been left with “severely diminished vision” in his eye, the court document said.
On Thursday the Crown prosecutor David Wiseman said the court had a cultural report for Poulgrain that showed while he had become isolated from his cultural background, he came from a loving and supportive family.
He said the 21 year-old, who has ADHD, had a “slim chance” of rehabilitation.
Justice Geoffrey Venning said the court would be reluctant to regard someone so young as having no chance of rehabilitation.
Poulgrain’s lawyer Maria Pecotic said her client’s ADHD showed how he impulsively became involved.
“It was planned by others and he was roped into it.”
In sentencing, Justice Venning said Poulgrain needed the support of his family when he was released but in the meantime posed a threat to the community.
The judge took time off his sentence for his youth, medical condition and his early guilty plea.
At 21 years of age Poulgrain has a string of convictions to his name.
His criminal record is mostly made up of burglaries and stealing cars.
Lisiate, also known as JFK or Just F…… Krazy, also has a string of convictions. He began offending when he was just 15.
He will be sentenced in December. Tapine will be sentenced on Friday.
