A woman was given her marching orders after making a bizarre speech at an Anzac Day ceremony, where she claimed the Anzacs fought in 2015.
The woman, who is apparently a self-proclaimed "common law sheriff" - a conspiracy movement claiming the Government is illegitimate and they are adjudicators of New Zealand law - took to the podium of an Anzac Day ceremony in Paraparaumu on Monday.
"I wanted to make honor to the soldiers that fought for New Zealand," she said in her speech. "They fought for us in such a way that it was just unreal.
"Anzac 2015 was the time that they did it."
Someone is then heard heckling from the crowd that "these people have no authority". The woman is then told to stop speaking and leave the podium but not before people left the ceremony in protest.
Paraparumu RSA president Philip Simpson told RNZ's Morning Report two others from the group had spoken before the woman - both of whom were reasonable.
"It wasn't until the third speaker came along... that the crowd obviously grew very restless and agitated, and some people did start to leave," he said. "It was at that point when I basically shut them down... and they packed up and moved away.
Other footage shows the so-called "sheriffs" claiming to swear themselves in. "We're going to do it with the oath today, on Anzac Day," a man is heard saying, while a woman replies, "It couldn't be more perfect."
"My feelings now are, they should not have been there, they should not have been allowed a podium. I made a decision on the spot because I thought that it would be less disruptive for them to be given that opportunity rather than saying no," Simpson told Morning Report.
The group's beliefs were the opposite of what Anzac Day was about, he said.
It comes after a man has handcuffed and dragged away by police during the Governor-General's Anzac speech in Wellington after yelling "the Earth is flat".
Footage showed two police officers on either side of the man escorting him out of the crowd.
