This link to a recent short documentary by Melanie Reid of Newsroom NZ shows how truly shocking the practices of Oranga Tamariki are and have been for some time. The interview with the Professor is great – he sets out the requirements under the Act, and explains that these uplifts are actually contrary to the requirements in the Act.
The most disappointing thing is that this documentary is 2 years old. What will it take to get change for the children of this nation??? They absolutely should not be treated like this.
