A major dispute is erupting between Te Kohanga Reo National Trust Board and one of its members, Toni Waho.   

It was confirmed by the lawyer of Toni Waho, Felix Geiringer, that Toni has lodged proceedings in the Wellington High Court. He says they are seeking an urgent hearing but would not comment further.

According to information received, a National Trust Board meeting was held two days ago where a motion was passed for a meeting to be held to discuss the removal of Toni Waho from the board. It's clear from the court proceedings he is strongly objecting that.
