Case Note 5169 [1998] NZPrivCmr 11 – TVNZ refuses defendant access to videotape of trial

TVNZ made a videotape during a criminal trial and screened an extract, with the defendant’s face obscured, in a news item. The defendant asked for access to all of the videotape about him, including the unscreened portion, held by TVNZ. TVNZ refused to provide the material and the man made a complaint to me.
