An Interesting Complaint

David Farrar has used the precedent of my case to lay a complaint with the Police about the breach of name suppression by TVNZ in the case of Daljit Singh.

Judge Harvey was very particular in making sure that bloggers were now included in the media and that the rules should apply to bloggers as much as they apply to the mainstream media. Therefore, though I don’t agree with the current name suppression alws TVNZ must be held accountable to the same law that I was.

The Whales spies also tell me that a separate complaint was also laid on 21 September against TVNZ and Guyon Espiner under section 140 of the Criminal Justice Act at the Whangarei Police Station by a concerned member of the public. My understanding is it relates to the breach by TVNZ and Guyon Espiner in the Garrett Case.

Apparently the complainant went to the Northern Advocate about this but they have refused to publish anything about the complaint because they breached the suppression order as well.

Throng has some screen shots of the alleged breach by TVNZ in the Daljit Singh case. If I was convicted of using code then TVNZ really are going to go for a skate on this, unless of course there are actually rules for some and rules for others. But one thing is for sure, we bloggers have fans and our fans are not pleased with double standards.

We shall see.
