  • The interim injunction was granted in the High Court at Wellington yesterday and names as first and second defendants, ‘John and Jane Doe’.

    “As I’m unaware of who is in possession of these emails, it is not possible to seek or obtain a court order naming specific people or organisations.

    “The effect of this interim injunction is to restrain the communication by any means, including website, publication, or broadcast, of the contents of the email correspondence.

    “This order also prevents the passing on of the emails to any other person or organisation.

    “The criminal investigation into who stole these emails, and who is in possession of them, is ongoing. The police have yet to give an indication of when their inquiries will be completed.”
