26 July 2002 - Name suppression order upheld
A lawyer speaking for Mr X has said that he is very pleased at the verdict that the suppression order should remain in place.
The Dominion Post newspaper, which had appealed the decision on the 25th July, is not so pleased.

Justice Hammond advised that even though names have been revealed through several media outlets, the public interest in the case was not outweighed by the harm “both actual and potential” of publishing the mans identity.

Dominion Post Editor Richard Long has indicated that the paper could appeal. They are also seeking to have the name suppression of the other two alleged kidnappers lifted.
