Police are seeking the public's help in identifying 15 people involved in the final day of the anti-mandate protest outside Parliament earlier this year.

The violent standoff ended after 23 days when police closed in on the protesters in an early morning operation. The final day saw some protesters lighting fires and throwing items at officers, injuring them.

The investigation has so far led to the prosecution of nine people and a supported resolution referral for one youth, Detective Inspector Paul Berry said in a statement on Wednesday.

It comes in addition to the 250 people who were arrested between Wednesday, February 9 and Friday, March 4 over the protests.

Berry said police are reviewing more than 15 terabytes of photographs and videos to identify anyone involved in "violent criminal offending".

“This is an enormous task and while we’ve made significant progress through our investigations, we now need the public’s help," he said.
