Court of Appeal rejects Ngati Whatua Orakei land claim

From Morning Report, 7:51 am on 5 December 2017

The Court of Appeal has rejected Ngati Whatua Orakei's bid to stop land they say is in their rohe being given to another iwi as part of a treaty settlement. The Ngati Whatua Orakei Trust says it's now likely to take its case against the Crown to the Supreme Court arguing the current approach to overlapping claims is a fundamental breach of tikanga and the hapu's treaty rights. Ngarimu Blair from Ngati Whatua Orakei joins us to explain.
