Urewera 17: Final Four "Terror" Accused Bailed

Urewera 17: Final Four "Terror" Accused Bailed

By Alastair Thompson

The final four "Terror" accused arrested on October 15th were bailed in Auckland District Court this morning. Police did not oppose bail as they haven't with any of the accused since the decision of the Solicitor General last Thursday not to grant leave for "Terrorism Suppression Act" charges against 12 of the 17.

Six fellow accused were bailed on Friday.

Those bailed this morning include Tuhoe Lambert, 59, whose name has been suppressed till today. Scoop has today published a profile of the 59-year-old retired social worker from Manurewa.

Also bailed was Tame Iti's nephew Rawiri Iti, and Jamie Lockett. Rawiri Iti was arrested in Hamilton and Jamie Lockett like Tuhoe Lambert was arrested in Auckland.

One other man whose name is still suppressed - and who was arrested in Rotorua - was also granted bail in Auckland today.

At this point five of the original 17 still have name suppression. The full list of the Urewera 17 is:

Omar Hamed, 19
Tuhoe Lambert, 59
Whiri Andrew Kemara, 38
Rongomai Bailey, 28
Jaime Lockett
(+ A 32 Year female dancer with name suppression.)

Rawiri Iti

Tame Iti
Marama Mayrick
(+ An unnamed person who was granted bail on day one, faces cannabis charges and is not charged jointly with others.)
(+ 2 males with name suppression)

Moana Winitana, 53

Emily Bailey, 30
Ira Bailey, 28
Valerie Morse, 36
(+ a 23 year old swiss national and musician with name suppression.)

Images of several of those facing arms charges remain suppressed by the court.

All those facing arms charges are scheduled to reappear in Auckland District Court on December 3rd.
