Millane murder suspect is 'nice kid who fell out with everyone'

He is believed to have sent the comment at 9.29pm local time on Saturday and Ms Millane was filmed outside the CityLife hotel in central Auckland on CCTV twelve minutes later at 9.41pm.

A 26-year-old man appeared in court in Auckland on Monday morning charged with her murder on December 1-2.

Justice Minister Andrew Little told media this morning it was "unfortunate the British papers have done what they've done".

The defence would be looking for every opportunity to say a trial right might be compromised and that was why suppression needed to be abided by, he said.

"We have got to do all we can ... if he gets to walk away it's a further injustice to the Millane family".

Judge Evangelos Thomas declined the application for name suppression, but Brookie appealed the decision, which automatically imposes a 20 working day suppression under New Zealand law.

Justice Minister Andrew Little said the global media, particularly the British media were not helping the Millane family. If the media are concerned about justice and doing justice for the Millane family, they should stop publishing details.

New Zealand media are prohibited from naming the accused and New Zealand police last night took to social media urging users to respect the suppression order. "What we can do is act as tightly as we can here". "Based on the evidence we have gathered over the past few days we expect that this is Grace", Detective Inspector Scott Beard said.

But several British media outlets have chose to ignore the suppression order and name the man. "We need to speak to that person or anyone who has seen it".

The British media have themselves raised questions about the worldwide effectiveness of name suppression after a celebrity was able to secure an injunction against being named in salacious stories about their personal life.

He said the case was "very affecting".

Police said there was no suggestion Millane previously knew the man she was seen entering the hotel with, but would not speculate on how they met.
