Tokelau court backs dismissals, finds pay withheld illegally

From , 3:04 pm on 30 July 2019

Tokelau's High Court has backed the government's dismissal of two public servants, but found it unlawfully withheld pay from them.

Our reporter Mackenzie Smith has been following the case and was at its March hearing in Wellington.
