Name suppression for a former All Black who pleaded guilty to child assault in Court yesterday flies in the face of Parliament's aims.
The former rugby star is the latest in a long line of top sportsmen (and comedians) who have appears in criminal courts and been allowed to keep their indenties secret. A poll on the NZ Herald's website asks: "Do suppression laws in NZ need to be reviewed?"
- 97% say YES
- 7% say NO
