The 73-year-old, who appeared via video link at the Auckland District Court this morning, has had an application for interim name suppression granted.

He’s facing three counts of indecently assaulting a boy, alleged to have occurred in 1971.

Judge Belinda Sellars said his pleas are not confirmed. He’s set to reappear in September.

A total of eleven men have been charged with historical sexual abuse linked to Dilworth School.
