SRSG to contribute to Scottish Government’s Wildlife Crime Penalties Review Committee

7 November 2014

The Scottish Raptor Study Group will be submitting a response to the Government’s Wildlife Crime Penalties Review Commitee. This Committee was established earlier this year, at the behest of Environment Minister Paul Wheelhouse, to examine and report on how wildlife crime in Scotland is dealt with by the criminal courts, with particular reference to the range of penalties available and whether these are sufficient for the purposes of deterrence.
