A Napier man has been remanded on bail for sentence after admitting blackmail threats police believe he had little ability to fulfil.

Appearing before Judge Tony Adeane yesterday in Napier District Court today was 55-year-old labourer Gregory David O'Neill, who had had interim name suppression since his first appearance in court on the seven charges on September 1.

Represented by lawyer Eric Forster, he pleaded guilty to charges of making the threats against seven companies during one week in August.

The names of the companies targeted by O'Neill have been permanently suppressed.He has been remanded for sentence in late-January.
