The French fishermen were outraged to hear that fellow
fishermen in Northern Island had been locked up as master criminals
instead of them infringing the idiotic fishing laws of the EU. The
matter was dealt with by Christopher Booker in the Sunday Telegraph
who mentioned that there was little or no mention of this outrage in the
Press and Media he also pointed out that the £395,000 fine vastly
exceeded the value of the fish they had wrongly declared. It also ruled
that all their assets should be frozen as proceeds of crime -which they
were not having been purchased before the crimes had been committed.
The French protesters told their Press:
" This is frightening. We are shocked at the
British Court's decisions to jail the two fishermen, treating them worse
than drug dealers, and ALL for COD."
