Is $2.5m enough for Teina Pora?

He was wrongly jailed for twenty one years, which he will never get back.

So does a pay-out of $2.5 and an official apology from the Government cut it?

The Government says it had to follow cabinet 'guidelines' when deciding on the amount of compensation offered to Teina Pora.

A claim which seems a bit rich, given they are just that; guidelines.

So what really stopped them offering a more sizeable compensation package?

Minister of Justice Amy Adams joined Paul Henry.
