Counterter­rorism bill advances after attack


In a move following a terror attack in Auckland more than two weeks ago, a counterter­rorism bill has returned to Parliament for a second reading in an important step taken by New Zealand

toward giving law enforcemen­t agencies greater power to protect the country from terrorists. The legislatio­n is expected to introduce the criminal offense of “planning or preparatio­n for a terrorist act”, said Justice Minister Kris Faafoi in a statement on Tuesday.
