Legislate a Minimum Sentence of 40 Years for Premeditated Murder.

This petition had 341 supporters

The minimum sentence for premeditated murder in New Zealand is insufficient to serve as any kind of real deterrent and does not adequately reflect the crime. Successive Parliaments and Governments have proven themselves impotent with regard to making a meaningful legislative change in this area.

This petition seeks to draw the attention of Parliament to this most pressing of issues, and to the on-going frustration of New Zealanders across the country who rightfully feel that our current legislation undermines the value of human life. 

Should this petition acquire the appropriate level of support, it will be followed up by a physical version which will aim to trigger a Citizens Initiated Referendum on the issue.
