Christchurch Muslims to monitor radicalised teenager

From Morning Report, 7:28 am on 16 February 2018

The Christchurch Muslim community will be involved in intensive monitoring of a radicalised teenage boy sentenced for a violent attack last July that police say terrified a large number of people. All details of what happened have been suppressed. The teenager was sentenced in the Christchurch District Court yesterday to two years intensive supervision. Hazim Arafeh is the president of the Federation of Islamic Associations. He told RNZ reporter Laura Dooney he's pleased the boy has now been sent to prison.
