A tribunal has ruled that an Auckland landlord harassed his tenant by using derogatory language against him, calling him a “bloody Māori”, Stuff reports. The former tenant of an Auckland property, who had his identity suppressed by the Tenancy Tribunal, was awarded almost $9000 after his landlord let him live in an unlawful rental, forbade him from having guests over, and made offensive comments about his race. The tenancy lasted about 14 weeks, from November 2020 to February 2021.
