A lawyer for two former Tokelau public servants has told the territory's High Court his clients were unlawfully dismissed.

The pair took on Tokelau's government this week in the first substantial hearing of the Tokelau High Court, which sits in Wellington.

Ben Robinson Drawbridge spoke with Mackenzie Smith, who was at the hearing, and asked him to sum up the case.
