The Te Kauhanganui tribal parliament had voted in favor of reimbursing Chairwoman Tania Martin’s legal costs incurred during her defense months ago when the Maori king and Morgan attempted to have her fired because she started asking hard questions about the financial state of Tainui.
Despite violating the constitution and Te Kauhanganui Rules, and showing absolutely no respect for the Tainui Tribal Parliament, Morgan and Te Arataura have fought tooth and nail to to prevent Martin’s costs from being paid. Until today. The High Court has displayed common sense and ordered Te Arataura to pay Martin’s costs in full.
The worst thing about this fiasco is the unnessary waste of Tainui money on needless lawyers that cost $1,000 per hour, wasting court time, and a total waste for Te Kauhanganui which Te Arataura are responsible for. Get rid of them.
Power to the People!
