85 Enforcement by High Court of injunctions


For the purpose of enforcing any injunction issued by the court, the Chief Judge may, on the application of any party or of the Chief Judge’s own motion, transmit a copy of the injunction, under the hand of the Chief Judge and the seal of the court by which the injunction was issued, to any Registrar of the High Court, who shall file it as of record in that court.


On the filing of a copy of any such injunction, the injunction shall be deemed to have been issued by the High Court, and may be enforced by writ of attachment or otherwise in accordance with the practice of that court.


For the purposes of this section, a certificate under the hand of a Judge of the Maori Land Court, with reference to any proceedings of that court or of the Maori Appellate Court in the matter in which the injunction was issued, or setting forth any particulars relating to the performance or non-performance by any person of the requirements of that injunction, shall, unless the contrary is proved, be accepted by the High Court and by all officers of that court as sufficient evidence of the facts so certified.


The filing in the High Court under this section of a copy of an injunction issued by the Maori Land Court or the Maori Appellate Court shall not limit or affect any right or power of rehearing, appeal, amendment, or cancellation existing in respect of that order.
