The attack on Muslim worshipers in Christchurch was the worst mass shooting in New Zealand’s history

The perpetrator of the 2019 New Zealand mosque attack, which killed 51 people, has filed an appeal against his conviction, officials said.

Court officials added that Brenton Tarrant, 32, has filed an appeal against his case and sentence, and an appeal hearing has not yet been set.

Tarrant was sentenced in 2020 to life in prison without parole for premeditated murder and attempted murder of Muslim worshipers.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said he was trying to “re-harm people”.
