Tame Iti appeal paperwork yet to arrive

4:28 pm on 22 November 2012

The Supreme Court has not yet received any paperwork regarding an appeal by the Tuhoe activist Tame Iti, despite his indicating he will take such action.

In May, Iti and one of his co-accused, Te Rangikaiwhiria Kemara, were jailed for two-and-a-half years for their involvement in military-style camps in Te Urewera National Park.

In a statement released on Thursday Tame Iti says after much consideration, he will be submitting an appeal to the Supreme Court.

Supreme Court appeals have already been filed by the other two people convicted after a High Court trial, Emily Bailey and Urs Signer.

They were sentenced to nine months home detention.
