As reported by Stuff, wide-ranging suppressions apply to Canterbury harness racing figures who have appeared in court on charges including race fixing and drugs.

Judge Raoul Neave refused suppressions for five of the group of nine whose cases have been dealt with at an all-day hearing in the Christchurch District Court on Tuesday.

However, he realistically continued suppression orders to October 9 so those refused suppression can file appeal papers with the High Court. The suppression will continue until those appeals are heard.

Because the defendants sought suppression of name, identifying details, and details of the charges, the appeals will block publication of those charge details as well for several of them. The charges can only be reported in general terms.

All members of the group were remanded on bail for appearances on October 2.
