Hakiwai v Collier - Omahu 2M3

Māori Appellate Court (2001) 13 Tākitimu Appellate MB 164 (13 ACTK 164)

24 May 2001

Successful appeal against the decision of the Māori land Court granting orders to change the status and partition the land in question. The land was General land until a status order was registered against the title. Therefore the Māori Land Court had no jurisdiction to consider the applications for partition.

Māori Appellate Court (2001) 13 Takitimu Appellate MB 154 (13 ACTK 154)

15 May 2001

Unsuccessful appeal against a decision in the Māori Land Court. The land was Māori freehold land, not General land and the non-Māori owner was subject to the same requirements as a Māori owner would be regarding alienation. The Appellant had no capacity to alienate the land as he had not complied with the Māori Affairs Act 1953.
