Key Points:

The two men accused of assaulting John Key at Waitangi have made a second appearance in court.

The incident happened shortly after the Prime Minister arrived at Te Tii Marae on Thursday.

Thirty three-year-old John Popata and his 19-year-old brother Wikatana Popata face a joint charge of assault. They have been granted bail under the condition they do not attempt to either directly or indirectly contact Mr Key.

The men have not yet entered a plea and will reappear in court on the February 24.
