Police contravene environmental laws.

Posted: July 11, 2010 in Law & Disorder

IlieSince the 1997 Confiscation of Alcohol (Young Persons) Act came into force, police have been breaking environmental laws by pouring seized alcohol down roadside drains. The act stated for officers to dispose of alcohol in such a manner as he/she considers appropriate in front of the youngsters they have seized it from.

Cheshire Police policy states ‘the alcohol should be disposed of, by pouring the contents down the nearest available drain or other suitable place and the containers should then be disposed of in an appropriate waste disposal or suitable recycling receptacle’.

A couple of incidents that spring to mind, in 2006 around £2,500 of alcohol seized on Wirral streets was poured down the drain by police. Hoylake councillors David Elderton and Gerry Ellis, along with local resident Birgitta Kuhlmann-Muller witnessed the seized drinks being disposed of by local officers.
Also in 2006 police officers in Staffordshire worked in shifts to pour 2,500 cans of beer and hundreds of bottles of spirits and champagne down a toilet.

However the 1991 Water Resources Act states it is an offence to knowingly permit any poisonous, noxious or polluting matter to enter into controlled waters.The Environmental Agency includes alcohol in this Act. Anyone contravening this act are liable—
on summary conviction, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding three months or to a fine not exceeding £20,000 or to both;
on conviction on indictment, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or to a fine or to both.


To change the subject

Seven people have been arrested following a UK Border Agency raid on a food processing plant in Park Royal.

UKBA officers visited Royal Gourmet on Coronation Road in Park Royal, NW10 on Thursday 1 July, questioning staff to ensure they had the right to work in the UK. The seven, five Chinese males, a Malaysian male and a Malaysian female, were arrested for a variety of immigration offences.

Two Chinese nationals remain in detention pending their removal from the UK, while the other five people have been granted immigration bail while the UK Border Agency works to get travel documents to remove them. Plenty of time for those illegals to diasappear in our midst.

It’s about time those businesses that flout the law in such a blatant manner get shut down. One illegal worker is bad luck but seven!

A Czech female, was arrested as part of a UK Border Agency investigation into a suspected sham marriage.

UK Border Agency’s North West immigration crime team arrested 32 year old Anna Gabcova at her home in Wavertree, Liverpool on Wednesday 7 July. She was subsequently charged with assisting unlawful immigration, perjury and bigamy. Hmmm, how am I going to find out if she was due to marry a Nigerian.

Just to wind you up on this sunny Sunday

A family of former asylum-seekers from Somalia are living in a £2.1m luxury townhouse in one of Britain’s most exclusive addresses at a cost to taxpayers of £8,000 a month. Abdi and Sayruq Nur and their seven children moved into their three-storey property in a fashionable area of London last month because they didn’t like the ‘poorer’ part of the city they were living in. Mr Nur, 42, an unemployed bus conductor, and his 40-year-old wife, who has never worked, are now living in Kensington totally dependent on state benefits.

    I didn’t even realise that there were such occupations as bus conductor any more……….no wonder he can’t get a job…….something akin to coronation flag sellers I suspect!

    Seriously though the whole situation is no more than a sick joke…..who the hell allowed this to happen? and why are we employing such idiots?
