Supreme Court Will Hold Zaoui Bail Hearing Dec 9

Supreme Court Will Hold Zaoui Bail Hearing Dec 9

Images By Kevin List

The Supreme Court has not yet made a decision on whether Mr Zaoui should now be granted bail or, if not, whether the Mangere Centre is a suitable place to which Mr Zaoui should be transferred. The Court has indicated that because Mr Zaoui has already been detained for more than 23 months, further delay in considering his interim release or transfer should not occur.

Therefore, rather than remit the case back to the High Court, the Supreme Court will itself make the necessary decisions. It has directed a further hearing on Thursday 9 December 2004.


Ahmed Zaoui’s lawyer Deborah Manning addresses an impromptu media conference outside Auckland Central Remand Prison (ACRP).


Flowers placed at the prison symbolise renewed hope not lost hope.


Progressive Party MP Matt Robson arrives at ACRP after being informed of the Supreme Court decision: "The door is three quarters open for Mr Zaoui."


Green MP Keith Locke: "The day he is able to live freely in New Zealand with his family is drawing near."


New Zealand music icon Don McGlashan has been calling for Ahmed Zaoui’s release.
