Reminder – Nelson Tenth’s High Court hearing in Wellington

Haere mai e te nui, haere mai e te rahi.
He reo karanga tēnei ki ngā uri o ngā hekenga ki Te Tauihu.

 

On Monday 10 August, the High Court in Wellington will hear our judicial review case against the Attorney-General, David Parker.

The case is part of our ongoing Making the Tenths’ Whole work. This work is being led by our kaumātua Rore Stafford, on behalf of the owners of the Nelson Tenths’ Reserves.

In 2017, the owners won their case against the Crown in the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court found that the Crown owes a duty to the owners to reserve and protect a minimum of 15,000 acres of land in Nelson.

We have asked the Attorney-General to stop the sale of land held by the Crown in Nelson, until our case has been resolved. The Attorney-General has, so far, refused to stop Crown land sales in Nelson.

We believe this action is unjust and undermines the 2017 Supreme Court decision.
We are asking the High Court to order the Attorney-General to reconsider his decision. You can read more about the background to this case in the Whakatū pānui from June.

 

 

Te Taero-a-Kereopa
All whānau are invited to come along to the High Court in Wellington to learn more about the case, and to support the whānau.

The case begins at 10am, on Monday 10 August 2020 at the Wellington High Court, 2 Molesworth Street, Pipitea, Wellington.

If you are planning on coming to the High Court, please arrive with enough time to go through the Court’s security processes. In keeping with current Covid alert level, please don’t attend court if you have cold or flu-like symptoms, including fever, coughing, or difficulty breathing.

Please contact Kerensa Johnston, Wakatū CEO, if you would like more information.

Noho ora mai i runga i te pai.
