Kiwi court gives green light to Boobs on Bikes paradeAugust 19th, 2008 - 7:37 pm ICT by ANI
Sydney, Aug 19 (ANI): A New Zealand court has given the parade of topless women on motorbikes a go-ahead signal, after refusing to grant an injunction to stop it.
Organiser of the Boobs on Bikes parade and porn baron Steve Crow applied to the council for a permit to hold his annual parade on Aug 20 but it was declined on the basis it was offensive.
The Auckland District Council on August 18 argued in court that the parade of topless women riding down Queen Street in cars and on motorbikes breached its newly amended bylaw banning offensive public events.
Auckland District Court Judge Nicola Mathers rejected the plea by the council saying she did not agree, even if it was tacky.
According to the judge females walking down the street topless was not unlawful, but added her decision was made by considering the law not morals.
Meanwhile, Crow was complimentary of the judge, saying she reached the right decision.
“This was an incredibly balanced and well thought-out and complete decision and I am amazed that any person can listen to all we heard in the court and reach that decision in 24 hours, ” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted him, as saying. (ANI)
