Arrest in Tauranga after threatening online video
A man has been arrested over an alleged threatening video posted online that the Māori Party laid a complaint about.
The arrest follows a Police investigation of multiple complaints, including a number from Te Pāti Māori, about the specific video, says a statement from police.
The 44-year-old man was arrested in Tauranga this afternoon and charged with making an objectionable publication.
He is expected to appear in Tauranga District Court on Thursday June 10.
As the matter is before the court, Police are not in a position to comment further at this time, says the statement.
