Dear Editor,

It is very disgusting to see how our new crop of politicians is behaving.

Support for burials at sea

Monday February 11, 2019

Dear Editor,

I wish to refer to the Clerk of the House of Ariki’s comments on TV where he says the House of Ariki disapproves of burials at sea because it goes against Cook Islands custom and that government should move to block this by legislation.
