Unanimous support for law change expunging historical homosexual offences

From Morning Report, 8:18 am on 4 April 2018

Parliament has changed the law so New Zealand men with historical homosexual convictions can have them wiped from their criminal records. Consensual sex between men aged 16 and over was decriminalised in 1986, but convictions for offences before that time remained on record and could appear in criminal history checks. Our Deputy Political Editor, Chris Bramwell, filed this report.
