It was possible the Japanese ship was responsible for ramming the Ady Gil which would make Mr Bethune's actions legal, Mrs Turei said.Really? Bethune would have had no legal power to make an arrest if the actions were illegal.
If the Maritime New Zealand investigation shows the Japanese vessel was at fault then this has been a serious mistrial and the New Zealand Government has been implicit (sic) in that mistrial.Don't you mean complicit?
Law & English fails for Metiria. Back to school for you.
