A prominent New Zealander has appeared in court facing 12 charges of indecent assault against two complainants.
The man made his second appearance in a district court today to apply for continued name suppression.
Judge Roy Wade denied the application and ruled the man's name suppression would lapse in 20 working days - at 5pm on March 19 - unless an appeal was lodged in the High Court.
Most other details of the case are suppressed to protect the identity of the victims.
The man's lawyer indicated an appeal would be lodged.
Judge Wade also suppressed the contents of today's hearing.
The man pleaded not guilty and elected trial by jury.
He was remanded on bail to a further appearance in April.
