Sir Ranulph Fiennes & Eduardo Goncalves criticise Attorney General for refusing to send "soft sentences" case to Court of Appeal & launch crowdfunding appeal to catch masked hunt thugs
Show Notes
The Attorney General has REJECTED calls by Green Future News, Sir Ranulph Fiennes and thousands of others to review the soft sentences given to hunt thugs who viciously attacked 2 wildlife crime investigators, leaving one with a broken neck. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-leicestershire-44847607 Much loved celebrities including Bill Oddie and Downton Abbey star Peter Egan were among those who signed a petition demanding that Geoffrey Cox, the government’s top lawyer, use his powers to refer the case to the court of appeal under the unduly lenient sentences scheme. https://www.thepetitionsite.com/en-gb/725/797/337/jail-hunt-thugs-now/ Sir Ranulph Fiennes and Eduardo Goncalves - Editor of Green Future News - have issued a statement strongly condemning the Attorney General’s decision. They also announced the launch of a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for a reward for information leading to the identification and successful prosecution of the 4 other masked hunt thugs who took part in the attack. For more information please go to www.greenfuturenews.com In this special edition of the Green Future News podcast, we tell the full story about the attack, the Crown Prosecution’s failure to bring appropriate charges, the extraordinary decision of the judge to let the convicted thugs walk free from court - and how the Attorney General’s decision sends a terrifying signal to all victims of violent crime.
