Media personality in Comanchero gang case keeps name suppression

The media personality charged in relation to the Comanchero gang raids last month will keep his name suppression for now.

The man appeared before the Auckland District Court on Friday morning and entered a not guilty plea to one charge of jointly laundering about $300,000.

His lawyer requested an hour to make an argument that his client's name suppression be continued.

The judge granted him 30 minutes on May 17.

Police raided 10 properties associated with the Comancheros gang across Auckland last month, seizing $4 million in assets.

On Wednesday, four men involved with the gang pleaded not guilty to a raft of charges including money laundering, dealing methamphetamine and class B drugs, possession of firearms and participating in organised crime.

They are Connor Clausen, Pasilika Naufahu, Tyson Daniels and Jarome Fonua.
