As you may recall, Ngāti Kahu has two sets of applications before the Tribunal:
1. An application for binding recommendations forcing the Crown to return all SoE and Crown Forest License lands in the rohe to Ngāti Kahu, plus compensation on the CFL lands.
2. Applications for urgent hearings against the Crown’s deeds of settlement with Te Aupōuri, Ngāitakoto and Te Rarawa; in so far as they cause prejudice to Ngāti Kahu.
This is an update on the second set of applications – those for urgency. Below are links to:
FIRST MEMO FOR THE CROWN IN RESPONSE:
SECOND MEMO FOR THE CROWN IN RESPONSE:
AFFIDAVIT OF PAT SNEDDEN FOR THE CROWN IN RESPONSE:
MEMO FOR TE RARAWA ASKING FOR MORE TIME TO RESPOND:
As at the date and time of this panui, Ngāitakoto and Te Aupōuri had not yet filed on these proceedings.
Originally the Tribunal had directed that Ngāti Kahu would have until Friday 22nd June to file final responses to the Crown and its allies. However, given that Te Rarawa has asked for more time to submit, that deadline may change. We will keep you posted.
