Jackie Maikuku appeared in Te Awamutu District Court today on assault charges after he and his son allegedly assaulted a police officer in Kawhia.

Two men charged over an alleged attack of a sole charge policeman at Kawhia have been further remanded without plea.

Jackie, 19, and Jack, 49, Maikuku both appeared in Te Awamutu District Court this morning.

Lawyer Kerry Burrows, appearing for Jackie Maikuku and on behalf of Roger Laybourn for Jack Maikuku, said they were yet to receive disclosure from police.

Burrows and police also opposed an in court application to photograph the pair in the dock.

Community magistrate Kathryn Wilson remanded Jackie in custody without plea to reappear on February 25 to deal with his outstanding charges.

The pair - who both face charges of aggravated assault of police and assault with intent to injure - will then both reappear for a postcommittal conference on March 18.

She declined the media's photo application.
