    Doubts over name suppression for an Auckland couple who reportedly left lockdown for their Wanaka holiday home

    Doubts over name suppression for an Auckland couple who reportedly left lockdown for their Wanaka holiday home


    The pair have temporary suppression, to allow their lawyer to apply to the High Court for longer suppression.

    Wellington lawyer Stephen Franks says in a case like this, shame should be the first penalty.

    He believes when name suppression's given, it's a judgment the embarassment or reputation of a person is more important than the law.

    The couple were dobbed in online, and Police are considering charges under the Covid-19 health act.
