An order to suppress the face of the alleged gunman behind the Christchurch terror attack was lifted on Thursday.
Publishing the image of Brenton Harrison Tarrant's face has been banned since he first appeared in Court on March 16.
Fifty-one people were killed in the attacks on March 15, which targeted two Christchurch mosques.
"The face of the defendant has to date been pixelated in all filming or still photographs taken of him on that day [March 16]," a court minute released by Justice Cameron Mander on Thursday says.

"The Crown has advised there is no longer a need for the images of the defendant's face to be suppressed and the order now lapses."
Applications for filming, photography and audio recordings were denied for his appearance in the Christchurch High Court on June 14, where he will appear by audio-visual link and not in person.

The reason the alleged gunman's image was supressed in the first place and the reason for lifting the supression are not clear.
Tarrant is facing 51 murder charges, 40 of attempted murder and one charge under the Terrorism Suppression Act.
He's been remanded in custody and will next appear in the Christchurch High Court next Friday.
