Court says taihoa on Landcorp farm sale

The Supreme Court has issued a injunction stopping Landcorp selling a Bay of Plenty farm until it has decided whether it will hear an appeal.

Ngati Whakahemo challenged the sale of the Wharere Farm near Te Puke because it had a treaty claim over the land and wanted the chance to make an offer for it.

The Court of Appeal last week overturned a High Court judgment in its favour, because it said Landcorp’s actions were not reviewable.

The state owned enterprise wanted to complete the sale to a third party by May 30.

The Supreme Court has given Ngati Whakahemo chair Mita Ririnui until tomorrow to file submissions, and if necessary there will be a hearing next week to determine whether the appeal can go ahead.

ODT Cartoon outrage misplaced
We should collectively be righteously appalled at the tone deaf ODT cartoon that made light of the terrible measles epidemic that has killed over 50 children in Samoa. It was an ugly 'joke' that shouted white privilege, but calls to boycott the ODT, sack the cartoonist and the enormous social media wave of fury seem to me to be grotesquely misplaced.
