More celebrity justice – prominent person afraid of his own name

A prominent figure in the financial industry accused of a hit and run after a road rage incident, has applied for name suppression because two family members have health issues.

The man has been granted interim name suppression while Judge Greg Davis decides whether to suppress his name until the end of the trial.

He appeared at the Auckland District Court yesterday charged with wounding with reckless disregard and his lawyer David Reece said the case would go to trial.

Mr Reece argued his client should keep his interim name suppression because his family had health issues and naming the man could cause them stress and worsen their conditions.

Well diddums to them. Since when has the health of family members of the accused ever been a way to access name suppression. Yet another prominent person afraid of his own name.

Judge Greg Davis needs to tell this jerk who is accused of hit and run after a road rage incident that he and his family need to HFTU.
