Two of the six people charged over a large immigration investigation into the exploitation of migrant workers have been named.

Suppression lapsed for Mohon Man also known as Humphrey Man, and Yao Wen Jiang after their lawyers made no further application in Wellington District Court today.

Suppression was continued for four others.  The Immigration department is opposing and a full hearing is expected in April when all six are to return to court.

They face charges of perverting the course of justice, supplying false information, aiding immigration permit breaches and exploiting people working.

The investigation had been into an immigration agency.
