Crown prosecutors have now charged a total of 91 people charged with riot-related offences.
Damage to property on the night of the riot, which saw vehicles flipped and burned and window fronts smashed, is estimated at $3 million.
Investigators have so far recommended nearly 600 charges against 200 suspected rioters.
