The Australian who shot the mosque was sentenced to life in prison

A court in New Zealand has sentenced Australian Brenton Tarrant, who shot up mosques in the city of Christchurch, to life in prison without parole. This is reported by the NZ Herald.

It is noted that a life sentence without the right to early release was imposed for the first time in the history of New Zealand.

On the last day of proceedings in a court of Tarrant refused to speak. He first pleaded guilty to murder, attempted murder and terrorism. In addition, he decided to refuse the services of lawyers, deciding to defend himself. However, the 29-year-old Australian then told the judge that he refused to say anything else at the designated time.

On March 15, 2019, Tarrant attacked two mosques in Christchurch with automatic weapons. Then 51 people were killed and 40 were injured. The Australian broadcast what was happening on the Internet and the day before the massacre published a 37-page Manifesto called “the Great replacement”: in it, he claims that world leaders want to achieve the degradation and disappearance of white people.
