Northern hapu to meet over kereru case

8:19 am on 19 August 2015

Elders of a northern hapu will this weekend discuss the court case involving one of its leaders caught in possession of kereru, and whether it has been appropriately dealt with.

Kaumatua Waihoroi Shortland said he will personally raise the kereru issue when Ngati Hine elders met.

Yesterday iwi leader Sonny Tau pleaded guilty in Invercargill to the possession of five dead kereru.
