Hui Māori report released

Minister of Justice

Media Statement


24 July 2019

Justice Minister Andrew Little says the Ināia Tonu Nei: Māori Justice Hui report released today provides important insights into Māori attitudes toward the justice system and ideas on how to improve justice outcomes.

Ināia Tonu Nei – now is the time: We lead, you follow is a report authored by the organisers of the Hui Māori held in April this year to focus on Māori justice issues in the wake of the 2018 Criminal Justice Summit. It was released today to Hui Māori participants and the public by Ta Mark Solomon and Katie Murray, who are representing the roopu.

“I thank Ta Mark and Katie alongside the organisers of the Hui Māori, Te Ohu Whakatika, for delivering a successful event and, subsequently, the report,” says Andrew Little.

“I had the privilege of being invited to this event, and indeed I spoke at it. The depth of feeling toward the justice system was obvious, as was the sense of urgency that we collectively need to grasp the generational opportunity to improve the justice system.

“There was also a great deal of generosity of spirit, collegiality and a genuine intent to partner with the Crown to lead work for a more effective system for Aotearoa New Zealand.

“I acknowledge there is work that we must do to improve the justice system, and the Ināia Tonu Nei report contains many recommendations that this Government will take the time necessary to examine,” says Andrew Little.

“This report is an important step in our journey toward a better justice system, and complements the recent He Waka Roimata: A Vessel of Tears report from Te Uepū Hāpai i te Ora - the Safe and Effective Justice Advisory Group and upcoming reports examining victims issues from the Chief Victims Advisor.

“It is clear that New Zealanders from across the country are calling for the criminal justice system to be overhauled. It is also clear that we must do better for Māori, who are over-represented in nearly every stage of the justice system.

“We need a criminal justice system that holds to account, and that strives to change the factors in offenders’ lives that cause offending. The objective must be less offending, less re-offending, and fewer victims of crime who are better supported,” says Andrew Little.

Gordon Campbell: On Why Todd Muller Needs To Own The Privacy Leak Scandal


Whenever a political scandal breaks, party leaders have two basic options. They can confess to being in boots and all, and try to brazen it out : nothing to see here, move on. This tended to be the John Key approach. Very hard to pull that off in this case, given that it involved violating the privacy of sick New Zealanders for party political gain.
The other option is to claim innocence of this terrible, no good, highly regrettable “error of judgement” and apologise profusely for the sins of others, while absolving your own good self of any responsibility. This has been Todd Muller’s chosen path.... More>>
