18 October 2001
Media are reminded that Constable A has been granted name suppression until noon tomorrow (19 October 2001), following
his appearance in the New Plymouth District Court this morning.
On 19 October, Media organisations should check with Media Relations staff in the Office of the Police Commissioner to
establish the status of this suppression order before proceeding with any potential identification of Constable A.
Your co-operation in this matter is greatly appreciated.
Lawyers acting for Constable A will be appealing the judges name suppression order.
