New Zealand Considers Monitoring Sex Offenders

The New Zealand government may make sweeping changes to its current policy towards sex offenders. It is considering to establish a register to track sex offenders and pedophiles, toughen sentencing laws against serious sex offenders, and enacting mandatory police checks on people planning to work with children. These proposed changes follow an incident earlier this year in which a convicted rapist attacked and stabbed to death a 23-year-old woman two months after he was released from prison.
