No plea over migrant exploitation charges

22:45, Jan 23 2013

Six people charged over migrant worker exploitation have been remanded for a further month without plea.

Wellington District Court judge Stephen Harrop remanded all six on bail and continued name suppression until the next hearing in February.

He excused the attendance of one of the women charged.  All are charged with supplying false information, perverting the course of justice, aiding and abetting breaches of permits and exploitation.

Immigration New Zealand had run an investigation into permit breaches and exploitation of workers entitled to work in New Zealand.
