Fears have been raised at the news the mosque shooter will represent himself at his sentencing next month and use the platform to spread hate.

In March of this year, the man responsible for last year's Christchurch mosque shootings pleaded guilty to 51 counts of murder, 40 counts of attempted murder, and engaging in a terrorist act.

Karyn speaks with Professor Andrew Geddis about the sentencing hearing on 24 August that will determine how many years he remains in prison.
