Forsyth Barr analyst named in road-rage case

Forsyth Barr analyst named in 'road-rage' case

Dec. 2 (BusinessDesk) – Forsyth Barr analyst Guy Hallwright has been named in a 'road-rage' case after losing his bid for name suppression.

Hallwright is accused of reckless disregard to the safety of another, causing grievous bodily harm, and will face trial in the Auckland District Court next year over the so-called ‘road rage’ incident on Sept. 8, according to the High Court ruling turning down name suppression.

It is alleged he hit Sung Jin Kim with his car after an exchange of angry gestures while at a traffic light led to an argument when both men stopped on Mount Eden Road. After driving a short distance away, Hallwright rang emergency services and returned to the scene.

Both of Kim’s legs were seriously injured, and his left ankle was shattered, requiring reconstructive surgery.

Hallwright is reportedly defending the charges.

In the High Court in Auckland, Justice Geoffrey Venning yesterday quashed the appeal for name suppression, saying Hallwright’s right to privacy was outweighed by the need for an open justice system.
