Tami Iti’s and his criminal cohorts were terrorist and training to overthrow the government violently.
There were 18 of them but only four remained. And now after years of postponement and botched investigations and cover ups all they can agree upon is the fact that some of the weapons were illegal. Wahlidah!
My opinion is that the very fact that John Key got the police go ahead to meet with Tame Iti just weeks before the outrageous attack on the Tuhoe people meant they had absolutely nothing pointing towards a real insurgence or rebellion. What a waste of time and money and energy and what an unnecessary source of tress for those involved and persecuted.
