Waitangi And Titewhai – Screwdriver Gang – Cocaine Bust – Northern Ireland – Austria – Young People – Finding the Sick – Super 12 Warmup

WAITANGI AND TITEWHAI: The chairman of the Waitangi Marae says legal considerations have forced it to rescind the planned trespass order against Titewhai Harawira.

WAITANGI AND TITEWHAI: Titewhai says the Marae committee is making excuses to avoid addressing the issue of women’s speaking rights on the Marae.

SCREWDRIVER GANG: Auckland police say they are looking for more people involved in the so-called Screwdriver Gang series of bank robberies. Police say it was a straightforward arrest.

COCAINE BUST: Police are still not certain about the involvement of a Columbian yacht abandoned in the Bay of Islands by three Columbians. Police say they have not yet found any evidence the ketch is linked to the drugs.

NORTHERN IRELAND: The British Government is to start the legislative process to suspend the powers of the Northern Irish assembly. Sinn Fein says suspension of the powers of the assembly would be the biggest disaster in a century.

AUSTRIA: The Austrian President will today swear in a new centre-right coalition which includes the far right Freedom Party. The coalition’s leaders have signed a declaration affirming their support for democratic freedoms.

YOUNG PEOPLE: Government agency Skill NZ says more and more young NZers are working in low skilled jobs which offer no chance for improvement. Mostly in service, sales or manual work and few or no training opportunities.

FINDING THE SICK: Finding the sick. 120,000 diabetics have already diagnosed and the numbers are growing fast. The Ministry of Health wants to identify the numbers of people at risk of diabetes and heart attacks so it can help them.

SUPER 12 WARMUP: The Highlanders beat the Hurricanes in a Super 12 warm-up match yesterday in Palmerston North.
