Race Relations Commissioner wants more done on hate speech

From Morning Report, 8:24 am on 15 March 2022

On the 3rd anniversary of the Christchurch mosque killings, the Race Relations Commissioner is critical at the Governments lack of action in passing legislation cracking down on hate speech.

In December 2020, the Government promised to implement all 44 reccomendations made by the Royal Commission of Inquiry into the March 15 Mosque attacks, which included strengthening speech laws.

Race Relations Commissioner Meng Foon says the Government had been moving with momentum with the public having its say on proposed changes - but is now dragging its heels.

He spoke to Māni Dunlop.
