Name suppression continues for man charged with storage unit arson

23:57, Jul 27 2014

A judge has continued suppression of the identity of the man charged with the huge storage facility arson in Kilbirnie, Wellington, in early April.

Submissions the man's lawyer made in Wellington District Court today in support of suppression could not be published either, Judge Tom Broadmore said.

The Crown had opposed suppression continuing.

The defendant, accused of setting fire to the Kiwi Self Storage arson, is in custody until Friday.

Hundreds of victims had millions of dollars worth of property destroyed or damaged in the fire that began on April 4.
