Law expert says Government counter terrorism bill much needed

From Morning Report, 8:41 am on 14 April 2021

A law expert says the government's first legislative changes in the wake of the Royal Commission into the Christchurch Mosque attacks will have a significant impact.

The Counter-Terrorism Legislation Bill has its focus on cracking down on those who are planning or preparing a terror attack.

While the March 15 Mosque attacks were the catalyst, the bill will plug several other holes in our defence against terrorism according to Waikato University Professor of Law Al Gillespie.

He spoke to Corin Dann.
