More cyber monitoring of online breaches of court-imposed name suppression orders is leading to more monitoring of websites by operators and police...
Authorities are stepping up cyber-monitoring efforts amid online breaches of name suppression.
Last week, the identity of a New Zealand comedian was revealed on a TradeMe message board. The comedian is facing a charge relating to sexual connection with a child aged under twelve. The comedian's name and the TV show involved were revealed.
TradeMe is now cracking down on postings. Trust and safety manager Chris Budge says they swiftly removed the posts.
Police say they are also keeping a closer eye on the internet.
In a separate incident, blogger Cameron Slater has already appeared in court for breaking name-suppression orders online.
