In­junc­tion fails

Whangarei Report - - FRONT PAGE -

AN at­tempt to get an in­junc­tion through the Ma¯ ori Land Court Taitok­erau to stop 1080 poi­son drops over Rus­sell State For­est and Cape Brett has failed. In Whanga¯ rei on Mon­day, Judge Mi­haro Arm­strong ruled against the re­quest for the court to place an in­junc­tion on the Depart­ment of Con­ser­va­tion’s pro­posed 1080 op­er­a­tions. The ap­pli­cants based their ar­gu­ment in part on ques­tions over Ma¯ ori land bound­aries, Ma¯ ori reser­va­tion ar­eas and ti­tle de­scrip­tions.
