Contested Case Hearing requested over Oneula Burials
By News Release @ 3:37 AM :: 6282 Views :: Maui County, Education K-12, Energy, Environment




News Release: Legal papers delivered to Hawaii Attorney General, Dept. of Land & Natural Resources, Haseko-Ewa Inc., and Honolulu City/County Officials .

Armed with over "230 exhibits" that document many years of cover-ups, delayed meetings, and hidden agendas, by Hawaii's Dept. of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), Haseko-Ewa Inc. (subsidiary of Haseko -Japan), State Historical Preservation Division (SHPD), and City/County Parks Office, "final legal paperwork" has been filed with the State's Attorney General in Honolulu, Hawaii. Documents that were submitted define past and ongoing destruction of many ancient Hawaiian burial sites; the pilferage of sacred Hawaiian Royal-family heir-looms from the graves, and ongoing denials of Hawaiian citizen rights to preserve their culture by the developer - Haseko Ewa Inc., "with sanctions" from the DLNR, SHPD, and other City/County offices. (see attachments).

Mr. Mike K. Lee, a living descendent of Queen Kaomileika'ahumanu ( a wife of King Kamehameha I, and true mother of King Kamememeha III) is a Hawaiian historian and "cultural preservation" expert, and in legal documents filed by him, it seeks to bring an "immediate closure" to the further destruction of his ancient Hawaiian Royal-family's burial site, as well as, stoppage of looting of ancient Hawaiian capes, rare wooden kii's (idols), and other Royal funerary objects taken from his Royal-family's grave by Haseko-Ewa, Inc, when they began dredging the Ewa marina in Onelua years ago. In addition, there are seven (7) other burial sites of the Kings of Oahu and Kauai that are threatened to be destroyed by Haseko-Ewa Inc.

This case (since 2000) has been discussed and documented with numerous Hawaii Government officials, land and recreation heads, the major principals in Haseko-Ewa Inc. and City/County representatives.. The evidence presented will prove that Mr. Lee's Hawaiian civil and legal rights have been violated, and that his Royal-family's burial site was destroyed and looted by the Oahu Japanese developer. Haseko-Ewa Inc.'s lack of due-diligence when digging the Ewa marina violates the Hawaii State Constitution (Article 12, section 7). It states and protects the rights of Hawaiian citizens to preserve and protect their ancient Hawaiian burial sites throughout the Hawaiian Islands.

A final decision regarding this case is expected within 30 days.
