    Problems are being seen in charging the man accused of the Christchurch mosque shootings, with terrorism

    Problems are being seen in charging the man accused of the Christchurch mosque shootings, with terrorism


    Four new charges have been laid against the Australian national - including one of engaging in a terrorist act.

    He's also facing a total of 51 counts of murder and 40 of attempted murder.

    Massey University Defence Studies fellow Dr John Battersby says the Terrorism Suppression Act has been described by the Solicitor-General in the past as incoherent and unworkable.

    He suggests the charge could run into problems.
