The big laui’a

Re: Former Head of State “fooled”

Wow, so there are big lau’ias and small lawyers. Hawai’i, Maori, and the Aborigine, they had big lau’ias too, then investors arrived, and soon after, the big laui’as became small fishes swimming in the small pond, while the investors became big laui’a hunting in the Pacific ocean. 

The paopao just couldn’t keep up with the manuao. 

And it is still happening today, just hire a lawyer from New Zealand to argue a case and the matter will turn into a no case. 

Now imagine if you have problem with your land you take the matter to court, and the big laui’a from NZ, Australia, England and the US come over to represent the investor who leases from you. 

Guess what? You lose.
