Waitangi Tribunal inquiry into Oranga Tamariki continues to progress

By Regan Paranihi

It was announced last November that the Waitangi Tribunal would conduct their own inquiry into the policies and practices of Oranga Tamariki as they believe there is significant and irreversible prejudice towards Māori in their current policies.

Due to COVID, there has been a slight delay in the process, however, Māori Human Rights Lawyer, Annette Sykes, says the inquiry continues to progress.
