Mr-X arrested for Voter fraud, appeared in court, got name suppression too

I’ve heard from various sources that Candidate X has been arrested and will be appearing in court shortly. I have also heard that he will be applying for name suppression.

I would hope that the media in court would be opposing this vehemently.

UPDATE: NZ Herald and Stuff both have articles about this.

UPDATE 2: Unsurprisingly Labour Party president Andrew Little has told Radio New Zealand that at least one person arrested has links to the Labour Party.

UPDATE 3: On the same day FIGJAM Power announces that name suppression will become harder to get some dumb arse Judge in the Manakau District Court gives someone who is charged with voter fraud name suppression just 5 days out from polling day. So tomorrow in the paper you aren’t allowed to know who he is, despite the fact he has cast aspersions on others.

If I was a candidate in South Auckland I would state right now in public that it wasn’t me who appeared in court .

UPDATE 4: For the record, I published before an order was in place, I am only changing this post to show what a complete farce the whole thing is.

We aren't allowed to know who he is

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
