Veitch wins injunction over publication of police file

9:44 pm on 20 May 2009

Former broadcaster Tony Veitch has won an interim injunction preventing any further publication of details in a police file which related to his recent prosecution for assault.

In April, Veitch pleaded guilty to assaulting former partner Kristin Dunne Powell.

He was sentenced to nine months' supervision, 300 hours' community work and was fined $10,000.

The police file was released to some media outlets under the Official Information Act.

Another hearing regarding the injunction will be held next Tuesday.
