Christchurch shootings: Mosque attacker charged with terrorism

23 Mai, 2019, 02:31 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

The suspect accused of killing 51 people in the March 15 Christchurch mosque shootings will be charged with terrorism, said New Zealand police commissioner Mike Bush in a statement.

He is the first person to be indicted under the country's counter-terror legislation.

New Zealand police have said Brenton Tarrant was charged with "engaging in a terrorist act".

"An additional murder charge and two additional attempted murder charges have also been filed".

Brenton Tarrant, who massacred 51 people in a partially live-streamed rampage, was hit with the terror charge more than two months after the April 15 attack.

Legal experts said any conviction for engaging in terrorism would not make much practical difference, given murder charges attract a higher maximum penalty, but were likely added to reflect the traumatic impact on those beyond the named victims.

Tarrant's next appearance in court is scheduled for June 14.

The victims' families and survivors were told about the new charges at a meeting with police on Tuesday afternoon.

Ahead of the shooting, Tarrant posted a rambling manifesto on social media in which he identified himself by name and described himself as a white supremacist out to avenge attacks in Europe perpetrated by Muslims. "I'm happy that he will be made an example of.so that such an atrocity may never happen again on our shores".
