A Maori Television report that led to a shake up in Te Kohanga Reo National Trust has won the channel international applause.

The Native Affairs story Feathering the Nest won the Best Investigative Reporting award in the World Indigenous Journalism Awards 2014.

The jury said the story was an excellent example of the rigour journalists need to tackle such difficult legal stories.

Subsequent investigations and audits of the trust and its subsidiary have concluded there was no criminal offending but there were problems with the way company credit cards had been used in error for personal spending.

Native Affairs also won the best international reporting award for its coverage of Tongan Ferries.
