Police arrested two people in Christchurch last night in relation to alleged offences under the Films, Videos, and Publications Classification Act 1993.
At 8.45pm last evening, police released the following statement:
A man has been charged with two counts of distributing an objectionable publication and one charge of failing to carry out obligations in relation to a computer search.
A woman has been charged with distributing an objectionable publication, failing to carry out obligations in relation to a computer search and obstructing Police.
They have been bailed to appear in the Christchurch District Court on 31 August 2022.
As these matters are due before the courts, Police have no further comment.
Speculation is growing online as to whether the pair referred to in the statement are Kelvyn Alp and Hannah Spierer, the directors of Counterspin Media reportedly arrested last night.
Update to follow.
