Waitangi Tribunal review into Oranga Tamariki due for release

From Morning Report, 8:22 am on 30 April 2021

A landmark report into how Oranga Tamariki takes Māori children away from their families will be out today. 

The recommendations of the Waitangi Tribunal will be released at midday, following its urgent inquiry into the troubled children's ministry. 

It's the fifth review since the attempted removal of a newborn baby from its teenage mother at a Hawke's Bay hospital.

Meriana Johnsen covered the hearings.

She spoke to Susie Ferguson.
