Four west coast men have appeared in court for a series of child sex offenses.

But their details – and the details of the case – cannot be released due to heavy removal orders.

The men appeared in Greymouth District Court today.

A man faces 38 charges related to sexual offenses.

A second faces 14 charges.

A third faces seven counts and is charged with five counts of sexual offenses, including one representative count.

A representative charge means that the police believe that a person has committed more than one offense of the same type in similar circumstances.

The men will be back in court in August.

Judge David Ruth removed all identifying details of the men, as well as much of what was said at today’s hearing.
