Christo­pher Michael An­drews ap­peared in Porirua District Court on Jan­uary 27 and pleaded guilty to pro­vid­ing a false state­ment and be­ing a per­son pro­hib­ited from man­ag­ing a com­pany.

The 57-year-old was sen­tenced to two months and one week of home de­ten­tion.

An­drews is the for­mer di­rec­tor of Metro Se­cu­rity Ltd and Sur­veil­lance Spe­cial­ists Ltd, which were struck off the Com­pa­nies Of­fice reg­is­ter in 2002 and 2004 re­spec­tively.

In 2013 he formed an­other com­pany, War­rior Group Ltd, when he was dis­qual­i­fied, sign­ing a new name so that he would not be found out.

He ac­knowl­edged that what he had done was dis­hon­est, in­clud­ing us­ing a false name.

War­rior Group was struck off the busi­ness list in 2014 as well.
