ACT Supports call for tougher laws against rustling

ACT Supports Federation of Farmers call for tougher laws against rustling

"ACT fully supports Federation of Farmers call for tougher laws against rustling" said ACT Leader Jamie Whyte.

"Once when National was the farmers' party the government would have taken strong action. Parliament as a whole is soft on property crime which is the reason burglary and cattle rustling are out of control.

They are crimes that pay. ACT has the way to stop it - take property theft seriously and send burglars and cattle rustlers to jail. We need mandatory prison for professional property criminals."
