    Warnings from a justice advocacy group... systemic bias is harming Maori

    Warnings from a justice advocacy group... systemic bias is harming Maori


    Stats NZ data shows a Maori person with no previous convictions is 1.8 times more likely to have a police proceeding brought against them than a Pakeha.

    They're also seven times more likely to be charged.

    JustSpeak Director Tania Sawicki Mead says it has created distrust.

    She says the Government and police need to take systemic bias seriously - so people can have faith in the justice system.
