That prominent New Zealander again

Postby Max » Tue Mar 03, 2015 12:35 am

Sorry, a bit out of date. Of course we totally don't know who this is, nor would we dream of speculating in this forum.

http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/6 ... lt-charges

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.

Might be, Lorde's a bloke right?

Whatever, I'm sure no MP would do a thing like that. And if he did I'm sure our magnificent Police and our Honorable Prime Minister wouldn't cover for him or influence the courts into issuing sweeping suppression orders. After all we're an open and democratic society aren't we?

So the name suppression expires after the Northland by-election. How convenient.

http://www.nbr.co.nz/article/prominent- ... -vy-170285

A prominent New Zealander facing multiple charges of indecent assault is appealing an order that would have let media name him.

The man has pleaded not guilty to 12 indecent assault charges, involving two complainants.

He has been remanded on bail until April 20.

In February Judge Roy Wade ordered the suppression order, which stops media from identifying the man, to lapse today at 5pm.

However, the man's lawyer had indicated an appeal would be made.

A High Court this afternoon confirmed the man is appealing the lifting of the suppression, which automatically means the suppression is extended until the appeal is heard.

Barrister Graeme Edgeler – who is not acting on the case - told NBR ONLINE a suppression appeal ordinarily takes three to four weeks to come before a High Court, although one could expect a decision quickly after that.

Unless Maori make up 100% of National voters, I think that's pretty likely

Winston did it, and he fought a clean campaign. Didn't even have to use parliamentary privilege to expose the Nats for the pedophile protectors that they are.

The adversarial nature of jury trials forces the dichotomy of complete innocence/complete guilt. There is a grey area. This is a good step forward.
Radio NZ wrote:'Roast Busters' case drives calls for sexual violence court

A decision looms on whether New Zealand will get its first sexual violence court, while other specialist courts are proving a success.

Part of the reason no one was prosecuted in the scandal was the teenage girls' families not wanting them to be put through the wringer of court.
