Magistrate Ngaio Emanuel-Edwards has ruled that a case against former Education Minister Michael Browne can proceed.
She ruled earlier today that there is sufficient evidence to pursue a case against Browne.
The minister was arrested and charged in November for a serious offence.
He maintains his innocence.
The former minister is currently out on bail and the matter has been committed to the High Court.
He resigned as a minister but Browne remains in parliament as the member of All Saints West.
Browne also hosts a radio programme called pulse on ZDK.
