An Auckland lawyer and former Maori Party candidate accused of smuggling contraband into prison is vowing to fight the charges.
Davina Murray lost her bid for continued name suppression at the High Court at Auckland this morning.
She's accused of several breaches of the Corrections Act, including allegedly taking an iPhone, a packet of cigarettes and a lighter to Liam Reid, who was convicted of murdering deaf woman Emma Agnew.
Her lawyer Barry Hart says she has pleaded NOT guilty to the charges.
He says Murray has a very strong defence, which they'll be putting all their resources into mounting.
