Cook Islands Federation
|Cook Islands Federation|
|Historical era||New Imperialism|
|ISO 3166 code||CK|
The Cook Islands Federation was made up of the islands of Rarotonga, Mangaia, Atiu, Mauke, Mitiaro and Aitutaki.
The laws of the Cook Islands Federation were made by the local parliament, however they had to receive approval from a Resident from Britain. In 1899, the Parliament of Cook Islands ruled that the high court of the Cook Islands Federation could not give any punishment worse than those outlined by the Criminal Code Act of 1893, and The Summary Jurisdiction Act of 1894, which were both laws of New Zealand, and that both acts of New Zealand were to be adopted entirely.
