Maori Land Court computers down for a month or more

6:32 am on 29 October 2012

The Ministry of Justice says it will be at least a month until public computers at the Maori Land Court are switched back on.

The ministry has closed off access to the computers at the courts while the department's IT security systems are reviewed.

The computers are used to access Maori Land Online, a database of Maori land records.

The ministry says Maori Land Court staff will be able to assist with any land record searches while the kiosks are closed.
