A former Government employee in Northland has been granted further name suppression on charges of selling cannabis and supplying methamphetamine.

The man, who cannot be named or his specific occupation identified, appeared in Whangarei District Court today on a charge of supplying the Class A drug methamphetamine and another of selling cannabis to a person over the age of 18.

In court the man's lawyer asked for continued name suppression while police did not oppose interim suppression continuing, at this stage.

Judge Greg Davis continued interim name suppression, including name, address, occupation and any other details that may identify the man, until 5pm on May 17.
