The Laws of England, Compiled and translated into the Māori language.

§ 30.—IV. Sheriff

[i roto i te reo Māori]

§ 30.—IV. Sheriff.

The Sheriff is an officer appointed to carry into execution the judgments of the Supreme Court. If a Judge, after trying a prisoner, says, Let this man be hanged, for he is a murderer, and the Governor consents to this; it is the duty of the Sheriff to hang that man. Similarly, if the sentence of the Judge is, Let the man be imprisoned for a certain term, for he committed the offence for which he has been tried; the Sheriff puts him in prison accordingly.
