Hapu fights Mighty River Power Land Sale

(RadioNZ) Whangarei hapu Patuharakeke is seeking an urgent hearing in the Waitangi Tribunal to stop the sale of ancestral lands owned by Mighty River Power.

The hapu has also filed an injunction in the High Court at Whangarei to halt the tender process for the State-owned lands, which fall within its territory.

Patuharakeke has been staking its claim to the lands in recent Northland hearings.

Hapu lawyer Pru Kapua said selling it before a decision was out would mean the land was likely to be lost to the hapu for good.

She said it was disappointing as the hapu had an agreement with Mighty River Power which acknowledged the cultural significance of the land.

Ms Kapua said it was a huge issue and Patuharakeke would fight it on every front. However, time was not on its side, with expressions of interest on the land closing on Thursday.

  2. *If the IRS receives no response, you may receive notice for additional tax assessment or
    audit. The combination of income taxes and self-employment taxes can easily be the biggest single expense for the self-employed.
    This can eventually lead them to the courts, which would spend them a lot
    more instead of just hiring a team of financial experts,
    professionals who would work hard to give them the business reports, analysis and assessments
    they need.
