thisquality understood Kelvyn Alp, host of dis/misinformation fake news show Counterspin Media, was taken into custody at around 11.10am on Friday after travelling from Whangarei to Wellington to attend a bogus High Court hearing at Wellington's High Court.

Anti-vaccine activist Sue Grey, a lawyer who failed to contest and stop the government's Covid-19 vaccine rollout earlier in the year, organised the latest hearing scheduled for October 21 through to 22 to discredit the outcome of New Zealand's life-saving rollout during the Covid-19 pandemic.

It is believed Alp travelled down with his partner Hannah Spierer to attend the Court hearing in Wellington. Both have been seen on social media posts not wearing masks and mingling with a number of other people.
