Investigate Mag Going On Sale, Despite Gagging

Investigate Mag Going On Sale, Despite Gagging Order

The New Zealand High Court has taken the unprecedented step of ordering pages to be ripped from the upcoming issue of a leading current affairs magazine.

Editor Ian Wishart is furious, especially as lawyers representing New Zealand's Solicitor-General were co-applicants for the gagging order, which interferes with the public's right to be told a major story.

Investigate magazine was slapped with a gagging order last Friday, initially in terms so severe that even the existence of the gagging order was suppressed.

The injunction has been modified and now applies only to a specific major article in the magazine's April issue, which remains banned until a future unspecified date.

However the publishers managed to get court approval for the April issue to go on sale this Wednesday, provided the article in question is physically ripped from the magazine.

Staff will spend Monday and Tuesday removing the banned pages.

Under the terms of the temporary injunction we are forbidden from telling you what the story relates to.

However, the magazine's cover can be viewed at
