Tame Iti responded to the 40-page Court of Appeal document dismissing his appeal today.
"The court decision really only affects my body... not my mind or thinking - I AM free and I will continue to use my time in Waikeria constructively, I paint everyday and contribute to the prison community. New Zealand knows me as a Tuhoe activist, so they will be pleased to learn that even in prison... I remain an active Tuhoe."
Iti's eldest son and whanau spokesperson Wairere commented on future plans,"We are not discounting a Supreme Court Appeal but these things take time and money. Dad has parole hearings just around the corner...so we are weighing up our options"
