New Zealand mosque killer may appeal life term******
The man who killed 51 Muslim worshippers at mosques in New Zealand's Christchurch is considering appealing against his life sentence, saying his guilty plea after the 2019 attack was obtained under duress, his lawyer told state radio yesterday.。
White supremacist Brenton Tarrant, 31, was sentenced to jail for life without parole last year for the murder of 51 people and attempted murder of 40 others at two mosques in Christchurch on March 15, 2019, the worst mass shooting in the country's history.。
It was the first time a court in New Zealand had sentenced a person to prison for the rest of their life.。
Tarrant's lawyer, Tony Ellis, told Radio New Zealand he was advised by his client that he pleaded guilty last year because of "inhumane and degrading treatment" he experienced while awaiting trial.。
Ellis, who only took over as Tarrant's lawyer recently, has made the claim on his client's behalf in a memo to the coroner's court that has launched an investigation into all aspects of the Christchurch attack and whether due processes were followed.。
"He said because of how he was treated while he was awaiting trial and afterwards, (that affected) his will to carry on and he decided that the simplest way out was to plead guilty," Ellis said.。
"By this, he means he was subject to inhuman or degrading treatment whilst on remand, which prevented a fair trial."
Ellis said he had advised his client to appeal against his life sentence without parole, because it is what is called a "sentence of no hope" and breached the Bill of Rights, and he was considering it.。
Ellis said that he was instructed by his client only to speak to selected domestic media outlets.。
Tarrant, an Australian national, stormed two mosques in Christchurch armed with military-style semi-automatics, indiscriminately shooting at Muslims gathered for Friday prayers and livestreaming the killings using a head-mounted camera.。

Action packed Saturday in Premier with Solskjaer's future on the line again******
LONDON, Oct. 29 (Xinhua) -- A lot of the action in the Premier League this weekend is packed into Saturday afternoon with three of the top-four and Manchester United also in action as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces a key visit to play Tottenham.
Last weekend's 5-0 humiliation at home to Liverpool put Solskjaer clearly in the firing line, with many expecting him to lose his job after a record defeat and a dreadful display.
The good news for the Norwegian is that central defender Raphael Varane should be available after injury and Victor Lindelof is likely to make way (although Harry Maguire's recent displays mean he is also in the firing line).
Solskjaer also has to find a better balance in midfield, although the suspension for Paul Pobga after last weekend's red card does away with one of his selection dilemmas.
Liverpool will have their confidence sky high and with Mohamed Salah in arguably the best form of his career, they will be favorites to beat Brighton.
The visitors will look to control the ball as much as possible, but the question is whether they will be able to contain Liverpool's energy in attack and the final result may also depend on whether the returning Tariq Lamptey can shackle Salah for 90 minutes.
League leaders Chelsea travel to the north-east where Newcastle United are still looking for their first win of the season. Newcastle caretaker coach Graeme Jones is likely to bring Fabian Schar, Miguel Almiron, Joe Willock back into his team after a valuable point away to Crystal Palace last weekend.
Chelsea are still without the injured Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner, but their absence didn't cause any problems as Thomas Tuchel's men put seven past Norwich last weekend and although a repeat of that is unlikely, Newcastle will do well to get anything from this game.
Patrick Viera returns to the Ethiad Stadium at the helm of Crystal Palace for what promises to be an entertaining game against Manchester City. The home side still have Ferran Torres out injured, but are otherwise at full strength for a game that Pep Guardiola's men will expect to win with relative comfort.
Consecutive defeats have put the brakes on Brentford's exuberant first season in the Premier League and last weekend saw them lose keeper David Raya to a knee injury opening the door for Alvaro Fernandez to make his league debut.
The former Huesca keeper can expect to be tested in the air when Burnley travel to south-west London still searching for their first victory of the campaign.
It's not been boring since Claudio Ranieri took over at Watford, with a 5-0 defeat to Liverpool followed by Josh King's hat-trick taking them to an incredible 5-2 win away to Everton last weekend. Watford entertain Southampton, who have influential midfielder James Ward Prowse available again after suspension.
Norwich coach Daniel Farke was given a vote of confidence during the week after his side's 7-0 defeat to Chelsea, but if the bottom of the table side fail to beat fourth from bottom Leeds United on Sunday, that bonhomie may start to run out.
Finally, fourth placed West Ham, who knocked Manchester City out of the Carabao Cup in midweek travel to play Aston Villa, who have not won since the middle of September. Enditem
