Urban Maori Call For Sir Tipene’s Resignation - A push from urban Maori for a cleanout of the Waitangi Fisheries Commission starting at the top. Nominations for the commission close today. The body is heavily criticised by urban Maori for only distributing fisheries assets to traditional iwi. The issue has been the subject of a Court of Appeal case, but the court reserved its decision. Willie Jackson of the Manukau Urban Maori Authority says the problems lie with the Fisheries Commission’s chairman Sir Tipene O’Regan. Mr Jackson says the members of the three urban Maori authorities want Mr O’Regan to leave his position so change of thinking can be achieved.
