Tena koutou katoa Members,
I wish to apologise for the delay in getting this report out to members – we have been rather busy. This is a report of the first trial held under the sovereign jurisdiction of He Wakaputanga in modern times.
The court case COJ -07 -23 -001 for four high ranking NZ government officials has now concluded. In our capacity as the sovereign peoples under He Wakaputanga, Wakaminenga Maori Government, Te Kooti Wakanga Court of Justice – held the trial on 27 August, 2023. The trial took place online with an appointed jury, the Prosecutor and members of the Presidency of the Court who monitor and manage court procedures. The defendants did not make an appearance. A proxy representative was appointed by the Presidency of the Court to represent the defendants. After the presentation of the evidence by the Prosecutor the jury retired to consider the evidence and charges.
The jury returned after two hours of deliberations with the judgement. All four of the NZ government officials were found guilty of breaches of He Wakaputanga and committing Covid 19 crimes in their response to the Covid 19 Pandemic in the period from 2020- 2023.
