An Auckland blogger who today denied five charges of breaching court name suppression orders has now revealed on a website the name of a prominent Manawatu man last week sentenced to home detention for downloading thousands of pornographic images of children.

Blogger Cameron Slater pleaded not guilty when he reappeared in Auckland District Court this morning and was further remanded until next month.

The charges related to breaching name suppression orders on the internet in November and December last year.

The Manawatu Standard newspaper reported today Slater had posted to his website the name of the man last week granted permanent name suppression when sentenced to four months' home detention on 25 counts of possessing objectionable material and one of distributing pornographic images.

The man's name was also posted to an anti-suppression advocacy website run by Slater.

Slater said he discovered the man's identity after he contacted people in the Manawatu region.

Outside court today he said he expected two further charges to be laid against him.
