A Napier man charged with selling animal products has accused Ministry for Primary Industries of unlawfully taking something from his home when a search was conducted at his property.

Dawson Anthony Bliss represented himself at Napier District Court yesterday where he pleaded not guilty to two charges of selling animal products.

Standing in the dock, Bliss asked Judge Bridget Mackintosh for an order of full disclosure to be made because he said there was refuted evidence brought against him by Ministry for Primary Industries.

He said something was taken when the ministry searched his property.

He was remanded at large until a case review hearing on April 8.

Another man also appeared in court yesterday, and made no plea to four charges of selling animal products. He was remanded at large until March 9 so he could apply for legal aid.
