18/04/12: URGENCY APPLICATION TO WAITANGI TRIBUNAL ON THE CROWN'S DEED OF SETTLEMENT WITH TE AUPŌURI:
In spite of strong opposition to Ngāti Kahu’s application from the Crown and other parties who claimed that the Tribunal did not have the jurisdiction to hear it, the Tribunal has ruled that it does have jurisdiction and that it can separate the Ngāti Kahu claims out of the Muriwhenua Land Report for a hearing on remedies.
