(Dec 02, 2007) A bill to amend the Terrorism Suppression Amendment Act has been introduced in the New Zealand Parliament. The Terrorism Suppression Amendment Bill 2007 will ensure compliance with international obligations and improve workability. The bill provides for:

  1. ensuring New Zealand's compliance with United Nations Resolution 1267 by automatically designating U.N.-nominated entities as terrorist entities under New Zealand law;
  2. creation of a new offense of committing a terrorist act (with Attorney-General's consent being necessary prior to a prosecution being commenced); and
  3. creation of new offenses involving nuclear and radioactive material.
