Wellington: One of the men accused in relation to allegations of historic sexual offending at Dilworth School has lost name suppression, but cannot be named yet.
The man in his 70s is charged with four counts of indecently assaulting three different boys under the age of 16 at the Auckland boarding school, in the 1980s.
The man had received interim name suppression through to next month but the Crown and media entities, including RNZ, challenged it in the High Court at Auckland.
Justice Mark Woolford yesterday overturned the District Court ruling and said the threshold for name suppression had not been met.
However, the man’s lawyer, Claire Farquhar, immediately indicated an appeal of that ruling, and therefore interim name suppression continues until that is heard. — RNZ
