His name and identifying details are suppressed until at least next week. The NZ Herald opposed name suppression.

He was charged with threatening to kill members of the Auckland community between 13 July and 7 September.

He also faced two charges of supplying or distributing an objectionable publication on 5 August.

Defence counsel Peter Syddall argued for name suppression, saying the man or his family could become targets of vitriol or threats.

Judge Clare Bennett granted the man interim name suppression until Tuesday afternoon.
