TIME’S UP The apartheid Waitangi Tribunal is fully funded by the taxpayers and was set up to hear and make recommendations to Government of alleged past Treaty breaches by the government against Maori, but the majority of these claims had been fully and finally settled in the 1930’s/40’s.
Since its formation in 1975, it has helped advanced Maori and their assets to the tune of about $36 billion, in many cases by allowing claimants to distort, fabricate or omit evidence to favour their claim, a fact admitted by the Chairman of the Waitangi Tribunal, Chief judge Eddie Durie.
While the tribunal was set up to hear Maori grievances against the crown, it is now an apartheid, taxpayer funded Government organization being used to distort our history and steal assets and taxpayer’s funds that belong to all the people of New Zealand. Maori are no longer disadvantaged; therefore the tribunal can no longer hide behind, Section 19 (2) of the 1993 Human Rights Act.
It is time the apartheid Waitangi tribunal was abolished; it is well past its use by date. IAN BROUGHAM, Wanganui
