Goff Worried About Proceeds of Crime Bill - Ryall
Oh, So Now You’re Worried About The Proceeds Of Crime Act, Phil
Justice Minister Tony Ryall today pledged that National will strengthen Police powers for combating drug dealers and other organised crime.
“We want known criminals to explain how they can own expensive cars and houses while collecting a social welfare benefit” said Mr Ryall.
“Too many drug dealers are getting to keep their blood money even after they’ve been caught and imprisoned”.
Tony Ryall promised a major revamp of the Proceeds of Crimes Act 1991 to give the Police a stronger weapon in the war against organised crime.
“In a half-hearted response Labour's Justice spokesperson Phil Goff re-wrote my media statement replacing ‘Minister of Justice, Tony Ryall’, with Opposition Spokesman, Phil Goff’. Brilliant!
"Mr Goff concluded his retort by saying ‘the public deserves more than just political rhetoric six weeks out from an election’.
“The public certainly deserve more than just political rhetoric 5 weeks 6 days and 18 hours out from an election. Surely an intelligent man like Phil Goff can come up with some policy of his own.
“I’ll be making some more significant announcement to reduce crime shortly, Phil. You had better get the photocopier and carbon paper ready,” said Mr Ryall.
