Tongan King's NZ residence sale on hold

Updated July 28, 2011 16:42:56

The King of Tonga, George Tupou V, has suffered a legal setback in his bid to sell the Royal Family's official residence in Auckland, 'Atalanga.

He's withdrawn his objection to a caveat blocking the proposed sale from a group of New Zealand-based Tongan lawyers.

They say the property was bought with Tongan government money and not by the King's grandmother, Queen Salote with her own funds, and that means it's not the King's to sell.

One of the lawyers, Joel Fotu, describes us the legal ramifications of the latest developments.

Presenter: Bruce Hill
Speaker: Joel Fotu, Tongan lawyer based in New Zealand
