    The sentencing of mosque murderer Brenton Tarrant will be delayed because of Covid-19

    The sentencing of mosque murderer Brenton Tarrant will be delayed because of Covid-19


    The Australian has pleaded guilty to 51 charges of murder, 40 charges of attempted murder and one charge of engaging in a terrorist act, over the attacks in Christchurch.

    He did so via an audiovisual link from Auckland Prison.

    Police say sentencing will not take place until it's possible for all victims who wish to attend to do so.

    They say, due to the Covid-19 epidemic, that will not be possible for some time.
