The man who plotted a terror attack on the public has been granted permanent name suppression and is on the autism, anxiety and bipolar spectrums. He was radicalised online and came very close to carrying out a violent attack on the public. His online activities came to the attention of the police, who launched an undercover operation going by the handle ‘Ozarikon’. When the police searched the man’s computer, they found about 600 videos, of which 360 contained ISIS material. Three videos featuring the man showed him swearing allegiance to ISIS and claiming retribution against the government, New Zealand society, and the West in general. The man, of Cook Island and Māori descent, has since engaged in rehabilitation programmes and met one of the victims of the Christchurch attacks. The judge said publication of the man’s name may endanger public safety and prejudice the security of New Zealand.
