The New Zealand Bar Association has cancelled an event it was holding in Christchurch this evening following today’s mass shooting in the city.

The event to celebrate the making of new Queens Counsel was to be attended by a number of judges and lawyers.

NZ Bar Association President, Kate Davenport QC, says the appalling shootings in the city this afternoon make holding the event totally unsuitable.

“The NZ Bar Association is shocked and deeply saddened at today’s unprecedented act of violence for this country. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families and for everyone who is dealing with these such hateful and despicable incidents,” says Ms Davenport.
