Crown rushing Hauraki settlement before tribunal hearings - iwi
The crown is being accused of rushing to finalise the controversial Hauraki Settlement less than two months before a group of iwi will go to the Waitangi Tribunal to oppose it. Six iwi were granted an urgent Waitangi tribunal inquiry last year. Now many are concerned the crown won't wait for the outcome of the hearings before it finalises the settlement.
