    Under the Corrections Act, everyone in custody is entitled to exercise, bedding, a proper diet, one private visitor a week, a legal adviser, medical treatment, healthcare, mail, and telephone calls. But there are exceptions. Entitlements can be withheld for various reasons including being segregated or in protective custody, health and safety, and because it's not practicable.

    "He's under constant observation and isolation. He doesn't get the usual minimum entitlements. So no phone calls and no visits," said the source.

    Among Corrections staff concerns is if he is found guilty and sentenced to a lengthy prison term and his security classification drops on account of good behaviour, "There is nothing we can do about it, that's our system."

    Paremoremo has the highest number of Māori and Pacific Island staff in the country. The prisoner will be dealt with by officers of different ethnic origins, he said.

    https://www.smh.com.au/world/oceani...al-complaint-from-prison-20190331-p519cj.html

    50% of the prisoners are Maori, 33% are Europeans and the remainder are Pacific Islanders. Then there's the prison staff - the majority being Maori or Pacific Islanders. I imagine this prison is the last place a white supremacist would wish to be incarcerated. If he behaves and his security level drops, he won't be segregated like he is now and he'll have a massive target on his back. That's when he'll learn the true meaning of fear and he'll have to live with it for the rest of his life. Karma.

    New Zealand gun lobby backs ban after Christchurch mosques attack

    ALJAZEERA

    New Zealand gun lobby backs ban after Christchurch mosques attack

    Government announced immediate ban on military-style semi-automatic rifles after the shooting.

    4/1/2019

    "Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's government announced an immediate ban on military-style semi-automatic rifles (MSSAs) after the shooting and will put laws to parliament formalising its action on Tuesday.

    Finalising such legislation can often take months but Ardern said the matter was so urgent it will be done by April 11. …

    Further curbs - potentially including a gun register, tighter vetting and stricter gun storage rules - are set to be passed by the end of the year. …

    The suspect, self-confessed white supremacist Brenton Tarrant, is expected to appear in court on April 5.

    He is expected to face more charges of murder during the hearing in which he is set to represent himself."

    Christchurch shooter was Bulgarian guesthouse's first-ever Australian guest

    "Why did Tarrant visit a run-down Bulgarian town?
    The ABC retraced some of the alleged shooter's movements through Europe and visited the guesthouse in Pleven, two hours north of Sofia, where he stayed.

    The town is most famous for being the site of a major battle during the Russian-Turkish war of 1877 and 1878. …

    Tarrant travelled to 11 semi-rural locations in Bulgaria last November, all of which played witness to significant roles in the Ottoman wars more than 140 years ago, before crossing the border into Romania, and then travelling on to Austria.

    Ten months prior, he had made a 1,500 euro donation to the Identitarian Movement, which as a result is under investigation by Austrian authorities.

    The Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz has announced he intends to try to forcibly dissolve the group."

    Alleged Christchurch mosque killer's banned manifesto booby-trapped by hackers

    Alleged Christchurch mosque killer's banned manifesto booby-trapped by hackers

    4/1/2019

    "Despite the ban, however, and it being removed from the various sites it was initially posted to, copies have continued to circulate on dark avenues of the internet and social media sites.

    But now, an online vigilante using the name "Māori" is circulating a "weaponised" version of the document in an apparent attempt to thwart its distribution.

    When it's clicked on, it forces a system reboot that ends with a black screen featuring a message in red writing: "This is not us!"

    The hacked version was discovered by security firm Blue Hexagon, which has dubbed the hack "Trojan Haka".

    "Our initial suspicion was that this was targeting the press, but with all the data that we have now, it looks like it was not one specific group, just anyone who was trying to get a copy of the manifesto," Blue Hexagon researcher Irfan Asrar told PCMag."

    Group warns 'emotional' Muslims to resist retaliation talk after Christchurch mosque shooting

    Group warns 'emotional' Muslims to resist retaliation talk after Christchurch mosque shooting

    Apr 01 2019

    "Christchurch Muslims are being warned extremists can seize on the emotions of vulnerable people after a terrorist attack.

    British organisation City Centre Dawah is in Christchurch to educate the public about Islam, and the risks of radicalisation in the aftermath of attacks like that on two of the city's mosques last month.

    Founder Aqil Garricks-Ferguson said there was "minimal risk" of retaliation, but talking about the realities of extremist groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda was important. ...

    Colleague Ali Mir said they wanted to make sure there was no backlash in Christchurch, and to ensure particularly young, naive and emotional Muslims were not brainwashed to retaliate.

    "When these incidents occur, then you're going to find recruiters from either side seizing opportunities. It's a very, very dangerous time, to be honest with you."

    Christchurch mosque attacks: Muslim women still fear wearing hijab in public

    Christchurch mosque attacks: Muslim women still fear wearing hijab in public

    1 April 2019

    "Some Muslim women are still too scared to wear a hijab in public and school children fearing for their mothers' safety are needing counselling, says migrant women's organisation Shakti. ...

    Shakti case manager Rina Singh said some widows of the shooting victims would need long-term help as they dealt with their own trauma and adjusted to their new lives.

    Many of the women were young housewives, did not have jobs, could not drive, or were new to this country, she said.

    "One client is 23 years old with two kids ... she doesn't know how to drive. She hasn't been out there in the world dealing with money, she doesn't know what a bank card is or how the ATM system works."

    "Their husbands took care of everything, so we have to teach them," Ms Singh said. ...

    Shakti was also having to explain to the women what counselling was and how they could provide it if needed, Ms Husain said.

    "Counselling is not something that is common place in this culture. This is my primary goal, to make sure this knowledge reaches them."

    Hundreds of volunteers help Christchurch shooting victims and families

    Hundreds of volunteers help Christchurch shooting victims and families
    Apr 02 2019

    "Parker is one of the hundreds of volunteers – many coming from overseas – who have been working long hours to support those affected by the March 15 tragedy. The Muslim community identified what needed to be done and coordinated helpers.

    Widows and their children left without a driver's licence needed car rides for them and visiting families, people by the side of injured loved ones at hospital needed meals, and family members on temporary visas needed immigration lawyers.

    As families arrived from overseas to support the injured and the ones grieving the dead, Parker was asked to source warm clothing and toys for them. …

    The team delivers the Halal meals twice a day – vegetarian curries, fruit crumbles, meatballs, vegetable pies, banana muffins – to Christchurch Hospital. Three experienced chefs supervise the food to make sure it is meeting protocols and food hygiene. Parker gets referrals through the MAC: They tell her when someone isn't coping and what's needed, be it a care package or a meal. ...

    "A lot of money is coming in but you can't touch, taste or feel money. You don't get that instant feeling of warmth in your heart." …

    She was overcome with emotion as she described what families needed. Widows with young children who could not drive or speak English well were in most need of help. As part of the mourning period, some widows stay in their house for four months and only leave if absolutely necessary.

    Galal estimated there were more than a thousand volunteers on the ground"

    No cameras in court for Christchurch terrorist attack accused's second appearance

    No cameras in court for Christchurch terrorist attack accused's second appearance

    April 2 2019

    "A High Court judge has moved to block cameras from being in court, citing a need to preserve the integrity of the trial process and ensure a fair trial.

    It's a decision Anwar Ghani from the Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand fully backs.

    "We totally support the judge's decision, from as far as we are concerned we do not want to see that there is any prejudice in the trial going forward.


    "The New Zealand law should take its full effect on how it wants to deal with the individual concerned," Dr Ghani told 1 NEWS.

    The accused gunman is due again before a judge on Friday.

    That will be his second appearance after an initial hearing in the Christchurch District Court, and will be via audio visual link.

    He will not be in court in person.

    It comes at the same time as another debate about whether the accused man should have his name mentioned at all.

    At the moment it is legal - there is no suppression on the man's name."

    Iranian women's right activist condemns Western feminists | Daily Mail Online

    Let me be clear with you: calling a discriminatory law a part of our culture - this is an insult to a nation.'

    The issue was thrown into fresh focus last month when New Zealand women including PM Jacinda Ardern wore the headscarf in the wake of the Christchurch terror attack.

    The New Zealand women earned applause in some quarters but others voiced concern, saying it was not 'empowering' to wear the hijab.

    Q+A: Troll hunter Ginger Gorman on the Christchurch mosque shootings and cyberhate

    Q+A: Troll hunter Ginger Gorman on the Christchurch mosque shootings and cyberhate

    Apr 03 2019

    "He's an archetypal predator troll, she said. ...

    "The Christchurch killer fits the profile of a predator troll very well, unfortunately. He was, by all accounts, on the internet since he was a tiny kid, and he was quite isolated. So he likely spent a lot of time imbibing all those ideologies you find in predator trolls: misogyny, white supremacy, and other types of hatred. …

    "They're not really separable in a case like [Christchurch], or even with most predator trolling. These guys are often online from a very young age, completely unsupervised. They often come from difficult family circumstances. They're essentially parented by the internet and they get radicalised into trolling and in the case of the Christchurch killer they get radicalised into terrorism."

    Christchurch shootings accused could get life without parole - Law Society

    Christchurch shootings accused could get life without parole - Law Society

    3 April 2019

    "New Zealand Law Society Criminal Law Committee member Simon Shamy said anyone convicted of murder was sentenced to life in prison with a non-parole period.

    He said this was often a 10-year non-parole period, but theoretically there was no limit. …

    The court ... can impose a minimum non-parole period of 60 years, or never, no parole ever.

    "And that's up to the sentencing judge."

    What will happen at Christchurch terror accused's first High Court appearance?

    What will happen at Christchurch terror accused's first High Court appearance?

    3 Apr, 2019

    "Journalists will, however, be permitted to remain in the courtroom and take notes, while newspapers and broadcasters are still able to use images of the accused which were taken at the District Court hearing.

    But those images will remain pixelated after an order by Judge Paul Kellar for the defendant's face to be blurred in any published images. The order will remain in force until further ruling by a judge. ,,,

    What will happen? Will he enter a plea?

    The accused will not be required to enter pleas either to the single murder charge he currently faces or to any other charges which are expected to be laid by the Crown.

    It is anticipated he will be charged with 49 more counts of murder and dozens of attempted murder charges.

    There is also the possibility the Crown will seek to try him under the seldom-used Terrorism Suppression Act, which was introduced after the September 11 US terrorist attacks."

    The Christchurch mosque gunman has now formally been charged with 50 counts of murder and 39 counts of attempted murder.

    Initially, he was only charged with one count of murder while police investigations continued.

    Police have not ruled out laying further charges.

    Earlier this week a High Court judge ruled media would not be allowed to film or take photos of the accused when he appears.

    Suspected Christchurch shooter sent money to French group — report | DW | 04.04.2019

    Suspected Christchurch shooter sent money to French group — report

    The suspected Christchurch Mosque shooter reportedly sent funds to a far-right French group before sending a "donation" to Austria.
    The Austrian far right have recently come under scrutiny for their links to the shooter.

    "The 28-year-old Australian citizen who allegedly murdered 50 people in two Christchurch mosques last month reportedly sent a total of €2,200 ($2,490) to Génération Identaire, a French far-right anti-migrant movement, in late 2017."
