Insight: What's happening with our hate speech laws?

From Morning Report, 8:45 am on 21 February 2020

It could be months before New Zealanders learn the outcome of the government's urgent review of the country's hate speech laws.

In the wake of the Christchurch mosque shootings, Justice Minister Andrew Little fast-tracked a review of the laws because he didn't think they were thorough or strong enough.

When making the announcement, Little said he hoped to present any proposed changes by the end of year.

As the first anniversary of the attacks approaches, we're still no closer to learning what those changes could be.
