Man to fight perjury charge
A Coromandel man plans to fight a charge of perjury after being accused of lying during a trial.
Frank Allan Yeates, 62, today pleaded not guilty to the charge via audio visual link in the Hamilton District Court and has elected a trial by jury.
The perjury charge stems from a trial in March this year when he's accused of providing false evidence to a jury.
Yeates was further remanded for another appearance via audio visual link next month.
