Waiariki MP, Te Ururoa Flavell, last night renewed his call for the Independent Police Conduct Authority to issue its report on police activities in Operation 8.
"I am calling on the new chair, Judge Sir David Carruthers, to report on the Authority's investigation into the conduct of the Police in Operation 8" said Mr Flavell.
"New Zealanders have waited long enough. Quit stalling -and let's have the report out there for the public to read".
"If the Police Conduct Authority really is independent, then they should be confident in their conclusions, and release the report.
"The events of 15 October 2007 have been extremely damaging in so many respects, none the least being the way it has weakened confidence in the leadership of the police force and significantly strained relations between Tuhoe and the Crown.
"After a series of delays as we have waited for pre-trial arguments, appeals, hearings and trials to take place, we call on the Human Rights Commission and the Independent Police Conduct Authority to put an end to the political theatre, and let their reports be made public.
"We cannot hide behind the idea that the case is still going because of appeal and therefore it is not appropriate to release the report. Let's be clear, that appeal is about the sentence and not about the case itself. The case has been heard, people sentenced and the last part of the saga are the reports which hopefully shed some light on what happened on that fateful day".
