Mosque attacks: Human rights advocates urge open inquiry

From Morning Report, 8:13 am on 25 March 2019

The Human Rights Foundation is urging the Government to ensure the inquiry into security and intelligence agencies after the Christchurch terrorist attacks is open and transparent. To back up this call, released a report that accuses the SIS of breaching the human rights of the Muslim communities it has been monitoring. The Prime Minister has announced that the inquiry will cover the SIS, the GCSB, NZ Police, Customs and Immigration, but the terms of reference have not been set yet. Deborah Manning is a lawyer and an executive member of the education and advocacy group the Human Rights Foundation.
