From Apostle Brian Tamaki via Ron Mansfield QC,

Brian Tamaki denies the breach and will defend what is alleged when
permitted on Thursday 27th January 2022. It is not accepted that he should have been remanded in custody and any longer period on remand will be challenged vigorously. He believes in the value of the rule of law and is disappointed the contrary has been suggested by those who seek to silence him and any opposition to their power or policy.

It is a sad day for the freedom of all New Zealanders when people cannot gather and be heard in opposition to government policy when they believe it to be wrong and contrary to the good of the people.

The New Zealand Bill of Rights Act has lost any impact that those who
drafted it dreamt it might have.

Democracy has taken another hit today and we are all worse off for that.
