7:16 am on 19 September 2008

Three men charged with attacking the secret spybase at Waihopai have been committed to stand trial.

A 30 metre high dome covering one of the satellite dishes at the base was deflated during the attack in April.

Adrian Leason, Sam Land and Peter Murnane pleaded not guilty to charges of burglary and intentional damage at a depositions hearing in the Blenheim District Court on Thursday morning.
