A Wellington office worker has been charged with five new counts of importing MDMA, the raw material that can be made into ecstasy.

Amra Jordon Bess Wallace, 25, of Te Aro had originally faced just one charge of importing MDMA.

Five fresh charges dated between September to December last year were laid for her appearance today.

Wellington District Court judge Mike Behrens, QC, remanded her on bail for three weeks.  She had not pleaded to the charges.

Police had alleged two packages of MDMA believed to be worth $60,000 were intercepted at post office boxes in Wellington and Auckland by police and customs.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
