Christchurch mosque shooter to be sentenced on August 24

Court sets date for sentencing of Australian man accused of killing 51 Muslim worshippers in March 2019.

The sentencing hearing for an Australian man accused of killing 51 Muslim worshippers in New Zealand’s worst mass shooting has been set to begin on August 24, the court said on Friday.

Brenton Tarrant pleaded guilty to all charges in a Christchurch High Court hearing earlier this year.

Justice Cameron Mander said the hearing is estimated to last three days, but it will take as long as is necessary. 

New Zealand’s worst-ever mass shooting took place on March 15 last year when the lone attacker opened fire on Muslims attending Friday prayers in Christchurch, broadcasting his attack live on Facebook.
