Supreme Court has agreed to hear Pike River pay claim

19/06/2017

In February, the Court of Appeal dismissed a bid by Anna Osborne and Sonya Rockhouse to challenge the decision that let the mine's chief executive, Peter Whittall, escape prosecution.

Now, in a just-released decision, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear the women's claim that a voluntary payment of $3.4 million offered to the families was unlawful.

Joining Ali Mau to discuss this is Pike River Mine family campaigner Sonya Rockhouse.
