Judge rules police violated Bill of Rights

The Daktory in Auckland is NZ's first cannabis club
In the wake of the Daktory arrests, Police imposed bail conditions which would have allowed them to search the Daktory at any time without a warrant.

A Magistrate upheld the conditions and two of the accused were held in custody and made to sign bail forms under duress.

However, the next day the pair made voluntary appearances before a district court judge.

Thankfully, two separate district court judges ruled that bail conditions allowing police to search the Daktory at any time, without a warrant, violated the right not to be subject to unreasonable search in the Bill of Rights.
