New Zealand mosque shooter will face survivors in verdict

Listen to this article

The Australian white supremacist murdered 51 Muslim followers in the New Zealand mosque shooting last year and will face the atrocities of the survivors at the sentencing hearing next week, which could lead him to life imprisonment.

The far-right extremist Brenton Tarrant was convicted of 51 murders, 40 murder attempts and one terrorism charge in March after abandoning his previous defense of innocence.

Due to strict security and unprecedented media coverage restrictions, Tarrant is expected to hold a four-day sentencing hearing in the Christchurch court, starting on Monday.

Since the shooting on March 15, 2019, some of his survivors and the families of their victims will be allowed to meet him in court for the first time.

On the second day after the shooting, he was screened in court through a video link at a highest security prison in Oakland, except for a brief appearance in a closed court.

Supreme Court Judge Cameron Mander said that since the cruel disability still shocks New Zealand, the sentence is an important milestone for the victims.

Before the hearing, he said: “Final decision and closure are some of the best ways to get relief for Muslim communities.”
