Australian media reported Brendon O’Connell was jailed for three years in 2011 following a verbal racist attack on two Jewish men outside a supermarket in Perth.
A spokesperson for Immigration New Zealand confirmed O’Connell arrived in Auckland on 12 October.
“[He] had his entry permission to New Zealand revoked on character grounds and is now in custody.
“For legal and privacy reasons we’ve made no further comment.”
O’Connell’s fellow bloggers, many from the United States, are concerned for him.
