As from this point on, a complete media ban will be strictly observed by the Maori Party including Hone Harawira on all aspects of the disciplinary disputes process until the formal hearing into the complaint has been concluded.
I will be issuing a media statement following the hearing, hopefully by the end of next week.
TangataWhenua.com hopes that this move will allow the process to take place without any unwarranted media interference. From what we have seen most of the korero has been taking place in a public forum which cares little about the future of the Maori Party and most about headlines and readership. Tautoko Maori Party, kia kaha, kia manawanui!
