to 'reverse uplifts' of children in state care
Newshub can reveal Children's Minister Kelvin Davis has ordered an immediate halt to 'reverse uplifts' - when children in state care are taken away from their foster parents and placed with whānau.
It comes as Oranga Tamariki boss Grainne Moss clings to her job despite the Children's Minister now questioning some system-wide processes within the agency.
Moss was back in front of the Waitangi Tribunal on Monday - under increasing pressure to resign - but the chief executive is not going down without a fight.
"There's a great deal of work to be done and we are showing progress and looking forward to continuing that," Moss told reporters.
Newshub understands even some of her own staff want her gone, but Moss said she believes she has the full confidence of her team.
Instead, Moss revealed on Monday that her deputy chief executive Hoani Lambert has just resigned.
"He's got another role," she explained.
Last month Moss admitted that her system was racist.
