The royal commission — the most powerful judicial probe available under New Zealand law — will examine the Christchurch mosques shooting, in which a lone gunman opened fire on two mosques in a mass shooting that shocked the world.
“This is a critical part of our ongoing response to the attack — the commission’s findings will help to ensure such an attack never happens here again,” Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said. The royal commission will examine accuser’s activities before the attack, including how he obtained a gun licence, weapons and ammunition, and his use of social media.
At least 50 people were killed including citizens of Pakistan and dozens wounded in the deadly terrorist attack on two mosques in New Zealand. Multiple people were killed when a gunman opened fire on two crowded mosques during Friday prayers. Australian Brenton Tarrant, 28, a suspected white supremacist, was charged with murder and remanded without a plea.
