Harawira calls out Labour Māori MPs over Public Health Response Bill

By Rukuwai Tipene-Allen

Ngāpuhi leader Hone Harawira is calling out Labour's Māori MPs for not taking a tougher stance on the COVID-19 Public Health Response Bill that's being rushed through Parliament. 

The Bill gives police sweeping powers including entering private homes without a warrant.

Yesterday the Bill also gave authority for police to enter marae without a warrant.

The word 'marae' was removed today after strong condemnation from Māori.

But Hone Harawira says that's not good enough.
