By Ryan Boswell – 1News – 19/05/2021
A document at the heart of the secretive community of Gloriavale is now at the centre of a legal stoush.
Former Gloriavale member John Ready and another plaintiff, whose named is suppressed, have filed civil proceedings at the High Court in Greymouth.
The pair are seeking the removal of some of the men who govern the West Coast commune.
TVNZ and other media fought for the statement of claim to be made public, which the court agreed to with some of the information redacted.
