Brenton Tarant has been sentenced to life in prison for killing 51 worshipers, including a Bangladeshi, at a Christchurch mosque in New Zealand.
Brenton Tarant, 29, a white supremacist, has been sentenced to life in prison without parole. This is the first time in New Zealand’s history that a person has been sentenced to death at this level because there is no death penalty in the country.
Australian terrorist Tarant has been charged with attempted murder and terrorism, in addition to the murder of 40 people. The killing of worshipers at the Al Noor and Linwood mosques in New Zealand on March 15, 2019 was broadcast live for 18 minutes with the help of a head camera, which stunned the world.
Judge Cameron Mander called the attack inhumane and said you killed a child indiscriminately. You will not be forgiven.
I want to hear my father’s voice, said Sara Kasem, who lost her father. But you stopped it. Again, some said they would apologize to Tarant. However, Tarant was impassive, sometimes covering his face and smiling.
The court appointed a lawyer to represent Trent. Trent has backed down from his decision to defend himself on the last day of the hearing on Thursday.
The judge said Torrent said he had now moved away from his extremist ideology and considered his attack unnecessary. But the judge added that he had no remorse or sympathy for the victims.
Shortly after the killings, New Zealand tightened the country’s arms laws. New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Arden strongly condemned the incident and declined to name the attacker. Taranto first attacked the Al Noor Mosque, then the car and the Linwood Mosque with automatic weapons.
He was then stopped by two policemen on his way to another mosque. Torrent said he had been preparing for the attack for years. He had planned to attack three mosques and wanted to kill as many people as possible.
The members of the Bangladesh cricket team visiting New Zealand survived for a short time while performing Friday prayers at the Al Noor Mosque where most of the casualties occurred.2021-05-04 17:13:17
