The 16-year old was arrested in March but cannot be named due to his age.

Last week he admitted a charge of possessing the video and was remanded on continued bail, before a family group conference.

His bail conditions included not accessing the internet and not going within 500 metres of the Al Noor or Linwood Avenue mosques.

He appeared in the Christchurch Youth Court today and was remanded in custody until his next appearance on Thursday.
