A 19-year old Auckland man charged with threatening to kill members of the “community who were non-Muslims”, has been granted interim name suppression, Stuff reports. He first appeared in court on Thursday and then again on Friday for a hearing, where Stuff and NZME opposed name suppression. His lawyer Peter Syddall argued his family could be endangered if he was named, given public feeling following the terror attack at LynnMall Countdown. The man has been remanded in custody without plea to reappear in court later in September.
