The State v Family First

In June, the Supreme Court in Wellington handed down their judgement in Attorney-General v Family First New Zealand, and the Government and the Charities Board won the right to deregister Family First as a registered charity. This decision was a sad day for the freedom of speech and belief in New Zealand, and sets a disturbing precedent. The attempt – some would label it a ‘witch hunt’ – by the Charities Board to deregister Family First is a watershed decision, not just for Family First, but for the whole country. We’ve produced a detailed report of events so that you can fully understand what has occurred, and its implications.
