Abuse inquiry: Some Māori disappointed at widened scope

From Morning Report, 6:16 am on 14 November 2018

Māori abused in state care say they will be silenced in the government inquiry now it's to include abuse by the churches. The Royal Commission will be expanded to include faith-based institutions as well as well as state abuse. It also announced the four members of the inquiry that will support its chair Sir Anand Satyanand, including Māori law specialist Andrew Erueti from Auckland University. Survivor Paora Crawford Moyle is disappointed with the latest announcement and told our Māori news correspondent Leigh-Marama McLachlan having only one Māori on the inquiry is a problem.
