Today the Corrections Department announced its plan to reduce Maori offending and address over-representation in imprisonment. Hokai Rangi is a 5 year strategy that will incorporate Te Ao Maori, improve visitation for whanau, transform rehabilitative services, and provide sensitivity training for corrections officers so that they treat offenders with dignity and care. Maori would also co design the programme in a Treaty based partnership, and Corrections Minister Kelvin Davis says the plan is part of a wider shift to a rehabilitative approach to offending.

Rahul speaks with PAPA spokesperson Emilie Rakete and begins by asking her what Hokai Rangi entails and where the criticism is coming from.
