A ban on New Zealand media with the face of the Australian man arrested during the shooting at the Christchurch mosque has expired.
Cameras were in court when the 28-year-old Brenton Tarrant first appeared on March 16, the day after the terrorist attack in which 51 was killed.
However, an order made during the release meant that local media had to pixelate the face of the former NSW resident in all the images they published.

On Thursday, High Court Justice gave Cameron Mander a ruling in which the suppression was withdrawn.
& # 39; De Kroon advised that the images of the face of the suspect no longer have to be suppressed and the order now expires & he said.
The reasoning for the original ban was not included.
The decision anticipates Tarrant's return to court, via video link from his prison, next week.

He is expected to plead for 51 indictment for murder, 40 attempted murder and a single, unprecedented indictment for terrorism.
The suspected white supremacist is being held in the only highly secured prison in New Zealand, in Auckland.
The prison authorities have confirmed that he has not had access to television, radio, newspapers or visitors.
After the attack, several media organizations in New Zealand said they would try to use his name as little as possible and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said she would not mention him to prevent him from adding to his fame.
