PC (New Zealand) The claimant’s helicopter had been seized by the police having been identified as having been used in the course of unlawful hunting of deer. The grounds for the seizure were said to be inadequate. It was disputed whether the purpose of the seizure was for forensic investigation.
Held: The Appeal court had been able to reach the decision it had done on the evidence, and had not strayed outside the limits of its powers in making the order it had. There were no grounds for reversing the finding.
