    The Supreme Court has denied a request to use new evidence during the appeal of Peter Ellis

    The Supreme Court has denied a request to use new evidence during the appeal of Peter Ellis


    The 61-year-old served seven years in prison for sexual abuse of children at the Christchurch Civic Creche in the 90s - but always maintained his innocence

    He died fighting to clear his name - and a posthumous substantive appeal is set down for October.

    The Crown applied to have a further abuse allegation against Ellis admitted.

    The Supreme Court has ruled the evidence inadmissible and will release its reasons in coming weeks.
