Iwi leaders question Crown handling of Pare Hauraki settlement

From Morning Report, 8:26 am on 12 April 2019

Iwi leaders and lawyers have called into question the way the Crown handled the Pare Hauraki settlement, saying its attempt to fix old grieveances has created new ones. The government's $250 million deal is meant to settle the claims of 12 iwi from North Auckland to the Coromandel. However six neighbouring iwi argue the settlement also includes rights and lands within their tribal boundaries. The hearing now before the Waitangi Tribunal has been gruelling and at times heated. RNZ reporter Mani Dunlop has been there. She talks to Gyles Beckford.
