Name suppression has been extended for six people facing charges over exploiting and underpaying migrant workers.
No pleas were entered at the Wellington District Court today and all six were remanded on bail.
They are expected to reappear on February 21.
All six are charged with exploitation, aiding and abetting breaches of permits, supplying false information and perverting the course of justice.
They were uncovered by Immigration New Zealand during an investigation last year.
