"Boy Rider" Hone Harawwira being investigated...
Complaints laid with police after Hone Harawira filmed riding motorbike on forecourt of Parliament not wearing a helmet.
Maori Party MP Hone Harawira is being investigated by police after riding a motorcycle on Parliament's forecourt without wearing a helmet.
The incident happened a few months ago when the Maori Party MP was filmed meeting anti-violence campaigners. Two viewers have laid official complaints and it will be up to police to determine if the area in front of Parliament's steps is a road and therefore a place where the MP should have been wearing a helmet.
Mr Harawira is spending the rest of the Parliamentary year in his Te Tai Tokerau electorate after the Maori Party decided not to expel him over the racially abusive email he sent to a critic of his side trip to Paris while on Parliamentary businesses in Brussels.
He has since paid back part of the cost of the sightseeing trip at the request of Speaker Lockwood Smith.
