Bring back death penalty in some cases: MP

AAP logoAAP 23/09/2016

Outspoken Liberal-National Party MP George Christensen says Australia should resurrect the death penalty but only for particular cases.

In an interview with the Courier-Mail newspaper, the North Queensland MP said it could be imposed for terrorism crimes involving death and for the rape and murder of children.

"I personally think it's warranted in some instances, but I'm not gung-ho enough to think I can, or anyone can, reinstate it in Australia," he said.
