I bet he didn’t say he wanted name suppression so he didn’t appear in the NZ Herald

I love this article in the Manawatu Standard.

People want name suppression so they don’t appear on WOBH.

I bet he didn’t say he wanted name suppression so he didn’t appear in the NZ Herald.<

Or on radio.

Or on TV.

A man accused of possessing objectionable material has been given name suppression, after concerns were raised that he could be targeted by Whale Oil blogger Cameron Slater .

The suppression argument, which was heard today and last Friday in the Palmerston North District Court, revolved around what Judge Stephanie Edwards described as a “protracted” case stretching back nearly three years.

The man had interim name suppression orders rolled over after each court appearance, but an order had not been properly made on the two charges he faces, the judge said.

The man has pleaded not guilty to those charges, and elected trial by jury.

During the argument, defence lawyer Fergus Steedman said he had seen the man at various states of distress during proceedings.

“I know full well what a catastrophic effect publication will have.”

Steedman said the man would likely be targeted by Slater if named, which would have an effect on both the man’s health and his fair trial rights.

The judge gave the man name suppression today, after deciding naming him before the case was resolved could unfairly influence jury members.

The jury members were unlikely to understand some of the steps which had taken place for the case to get to where it was now, she said.

The judge also said naming him before the case was resolved would cause extreme hardship to him and people he knew.    

This man (if you can call him that) is a bully and a coward.

He has systematically bullied two women online for years. He has conducted a jihad against them. Those two women sought out my support against his bullying.

He is also one of the Mad/Bad Dads club and has attacked civil servants and others.

He has previous convictions as well for his online bullying.

The irony is he has also previously been convicted of breaching name suppression but now cowers behind it.

This is the same scumbag who also issued death threats to me and his own violent threats of physical harm to me.

I’m not afraid of him but it appears he is afraid of me.

Good.

The judge has been hoodwinked here. This man is a threat to innocent people and he is a coward, sitting behind his keyboard abusing people via his own forums, websites and Facebook.

If scum like him are afraid of them then I must be doing something right.

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.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
