The document was drawn up in such a way as if the attacks had already taken place. Preventing them in such a period was hardly possible.
The Office of New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jasinda Ardern, received a “manifesto” from Brenton Tarrant less than 10 minutes before the start of attacks on Christchurch mosques. It is reported by the newspaper New Zealand Herald , citing the statement of the press service.
“ It was written as if everything had already happened, in order to explain what was obviously going to happen … It was impossible to stop it ,” said Ardern spokesman.
It is noted that in addition to the New Zealand premier, the shooter’s Manifesto list included about 70 titles, including local and foreign media, as well as the leader of the center-right New Zealand National Party, Simon Bridges and Speaker of the House of Representatives Trevor Mallard. Ardern does not intend to publish the content of the message, the time when it was received, and what was written in the subject of the letter.
Recall, on March 15, in two mosques of New Zealand, there was shooting, as a result of which, according to the latest data, 50 people died. The attackers were broadcast live attacks on the Internet. Four shooters have already been detained by the police, another one is on the run. Police called Brenton Tarrant responsible for both attacks , who published a “manifesto” before the attacks.
