Attorney General Baroness Scotland Investigated By Immigration Officials | Politics | Sky News
notice how uk judical systems lets politican with a slap on their wrist for the same crime, no wonder, some places in uk are lawless ghettos
I find it strange that Kelly Tse was only guilty of hiring a helper in someone else's name. Surely she's also guilty of hiring a domestic helper for non domestic duties. (I guess all the dogs are registered in her name so it could be argued that they were domestic duties - or maybe you can't be misusing a helper who you shouldn't have been employing in the first place).
What about the friend whose name the contract was in? Wasn't she in trouble too?
I do have sympathy with Kelly Tse as she was trying in a misguided way to find a cost effective way to run her shelter and save some dogs that would otherwise be dead. But this situation does highlight three areas where change is needed:
- Regulation and registration of shelters - no individual should be able to keep 200 dogs without having to comply with some basic standards to ensure that both people's and animal's rights are protected
- Greater regulation of charities (I'm not sure Ms Tse's shelter was a registered charity, but such orgs should be, and HK needs a stronger regulation and governance structure for charities)
- And most of all, greater regulation of pet ownership and the pet trade at the macro level so that individuals like Ms Tse don't end up struggling desparately to deal with the situation at the micro level
I might as well point out that this is totally irrelevant to the original topic, before someone else does!
FROM TODAY'S PAPERS
Dog lovers income $4000
Illegal Maid wages $3400
Dog lovers new local maid $7000
I think the Dog lover should be locked up for being financially clueless, and to give respite to whoever she is sponging off.
Magistrates are notoriously inconsistent in sentencing and lawyers know which magistrates are the 'softies' and 'hardliners'.
