Free the Urewera Four!

This week a special interview with Tame Iti, a Māori Freedom Fighter who was accused of terrorism during the most expensive trial in New Zealand's history.Nearly five years after the ''Urewera Four'' were arrested and after five weeks of a court case featuring more than 50 witnesses, a jury has been unable to reach a decision on the main charge the four faced, of participating in an organised criminal group.
However, the defendants - Tame Iti, Te Rangikaiwhiria Kemara, Urs Signer, Emily Bailey - were found guilty of some of the 10 firearms charges each faced.
