No comment on court case

11:59 am on 20 October 2012

The Government is refusing to comment on a decision by the Maori Council to make a legal challenge against the partial sale of hydro power generation companies.

Papers were filed with the High Court on Friday afternoon with the council saying it had been left with no option but to take legal action to halt the sales.

The office of Finance Minister Bill English declined to comment, saying the matter is now before the courts.
