Submissions open on Counter-Terrorism legislation

June 18, 2021 at 4:33 PM

From the NZFVC

The Justice Committee is inviting public submissions on the Counter-Terrorism Legislation Bill. 

The closing date for submissions is 25 June 2021.

The bill was introduced in April 2021 as part of the government's wider response to the terrorist attack on Christchurch masjidain. The purpose of the bill is to better prevent and respond to terrorism and associated activities. It proposes to amend the Terrorism Suppression Act 2002, the Search and Surveillance Act 2012, and the Terrorism Suppression (Control Orders) Act 2019.

Justice Minister Kris Faafoi said "The Bill responds to the changing nature of terrorism internationally and domestically. Our laws need to recognise and provide a framework to allow early intervention, including against those who operate outside organised terrorist groups."
