Chen Palmer Agree to Provide Legal Advice to West Coast Anti-1080 Campaigners
Individuals with close connections to 1080 action group Karameans Advocating Kahurangi Action (KAKA) have enlisted the services of top public law firm Chen Palmer to provide them with legal advice over the use of sodium monofluoroacetate (1080) by the Animal Health Board and the Department of Conservation. That advice will also cover the West Coast Regional Council's consents process for the use of 1080.
Nick Russell, a public law specialist for Chen Palmer, will be working on issues pertaining to the use of 1080 on the West Coast and his advice will inform KAKA committee decisions. KAKA will continue to represent the people of Karamea and the West Coast who are adversely effected by or opposed to the AHB-sponsored 1080 poison programme.
