Tame Iti and the three people convicted with him of firearms offences from the Urewera raids case will to learn on Monday if they have won their appeals.
In late August the Court of Appeal reserved its decisions on the conviction and sentence appeals of former Wellington couple Urs Signer, Emily Bailey, Tuhoe activist Tame Wairere Iti, and Te Rangikaiwhiria Kemara.
Iti and Kemara were sentenced to two years’ jail in May after being convicted as a result of the Urewera raids in October 2007.
Bailey and Signer were living in Wellington when the raids leading to their arrest took place in 2007, but now live at Parihaka, in Taranaki.
They served about a month of their nine-month of home detention sentence before it was suspended pending the appeal.[here]
