Woman at centre of Hawera court fracas reappears

4:35 pm on 27 April 2016

The woman at the centre of a fracas in which five people were arrested and a police officer injured has reappeared in the Hawera District Court.

Patricia Tahere Green faces charges of theft and receiving over the removal of Shell Todd Oil Service's seismic survey pegs in December and February.

In March, five people were arrested after a protest outside the court in support of Mrs Green and her co-accused Kylee Kathleen Green became violent.

Ms Green appeared in closed court today, flanked by police and court security staff, while Maori wardens patrolled outside the building.

Judge Chris Sygrove did not require Mrs Green to enter a plea and remanded her until next month.
