Pomare Eviction continues – How long now? The never ending story of Farmer Crescent

with one comment

The media reported this morning that the continuing saga around the case of  three Lower Hutt women looks set to continue in their fight to remain in their state houses, despite the Court of Appeal dismissing their case.

The families were issued an eviction notice from their Pomare homes in March last year, but they say they were discriminated against by Housing New Zealand. A ruling by Judge Justice Wild at the time said nothing could change, and the decision to evict remained.

Todays Court of Appeal ruling has upheld the original Tenancy Tribunal , in favour of Housing New Zealand, however, it also pointed out discrimination is a Bill of Rights issue, and therefore not something the tribunal can even consider.

It’s understood the women will now continue to fight their case through the Human Rights Commission.

The never ending story, Im sure their lawyer Liz Hall (at taxpayers expense) is well shall we say, enjoying the journey.

As I have stated before we could have brought the three houses for them by now with the taxpayers money spent, last years video , shows the total then was $250,000 by just Housing NZ.

When will we get a grip on reality, stop proving a point, clogging up the courts, and wasting my money!
