From the NZ Herald
In an unusual move, the Crown lodged an appeal at the High Court in Auckland after the district court this morning granted Jamie Beattie Lockett, 46, of Takanini, in Manukau City, bail.
The High Court judge has remanded him in custody to reappear in court on Friday, along with the five other Auckland accused.
The District Court earlier heard Lockett declared war on New Zealand in communication intercepted by police. He faces three charges under the Firearms Act.
Lockett, who represented himself and had waived his right to interim name suppression, was one of six people who appeared in Auckland District Court after the police raids.
He was initially granted bail on conditions that included surrendering his passport, non-communication with some co-defendants, not applying for a firearms licence and not attempting to possess any firearms.
The charges Lockett faces relate to alleged offences in January, April and June.
At the hearing this morning, the Crown said police intercepted communications in which statements like the following had been uttered:
* “I’m training up to be a vicious, dangerous commando“
* “White men are going to die in this country“
* “I’m at war. I’m declaring war on this country very soon“
It described Lockett as someone who was an active participant in a group that had the potential to make a violent impact on New Zealand society.

Was he about to refile his $100 million lawsuit against the police? Or a billion $ lawsuit against prison guards? Maybe he was about to make some more unwise comments to entirely the wrong people?
the bloke who sent him the anonymous comment was saying he was a standover man or something. like chopper reed, less cuddly.
would make sense with the nz first stuf about gangs
Is this Lockett character some sort of Maori sovereignty activist, or what? He looks about as Maori as I do, and I’m a child of Dutch & German immigrants.
Who is this Lockett guy ? C’mon Trev, I know you’re dying to tell us 🙂
