You may have to read the headline twice. And whoever he is should hand in his blogger’s union card. From the Herald:
A blogger accused of breaching a high-profile name suppression has been granted name suppression himself.
The 51-year-old appeared in Auckland District Court today facing two charges of contravening suppression orders made by Justice Helen Winkelmann – the former chief High Court judge, newly appointed to the Court of Appeal.
The Auckland-based blogger, who writes about corruption in New Zealand, is also charged with five counts of criminal harassment.
The complainants include a politician, civil servants, a real estate agent and the former partner of an Auckland businessman – all of whom feature prominently on his website.
It is alleged that both in August and December last year, the defendant named and posted photographs of two teens involved in a high-profile attack that left another teenager dead.
Their names and images, which were specifically suppressed by Justice Winkelmann at sentencing in the High Court at Auckland, are still up on the blog.
This person is in major risk of the Streisand effect kicking in.
Please note suppression orders are in place. There should be no Speculation on who this blogger is although it took me about five seconds to work out who he is.
