  1. This is absolutely disgusting, I'm sorry but kids are kids, how on earth do you keep a child quiet when they are playing out. No wonder parents are happy to let their children sit in front of computer games all day. THE parents of British four-year-old Alfie Lansdell have been threatened with a $7720 council fine after receiving complaints that the youngster is too noisy when playing in his family's yard. Simon and Pippa Lansdell received a letter from Hull City Council warning that they could be issued with a noise abatement notice and fined and that, unless Alfie quietened down, he may have to be "monitored with digital equipment", London's Daily Express newspaper reported. "When I first opened the letter I was shocked, then fuming. Alfie can be noisy and boisterous, but he is just a normal four-year-old," Mr Lansdell, 35, told the Express. When outside, Alfie plays with football and spends time with the family dog, his dad said. The council letter outlines an allegation of "noise nuisance" relating to a "child screaming/playing in garden". "Legally, we have to investigate any noise complaints we receive, regardless of the source of the noise," a council spokeswoman told the newspaper.

    Breeder Fined $5000 for selling a sick puppy

    This is a real tough one as we don't know all the facts, but as a breeder if one of your animals gets ill it is courteous to either offer the family a refund or replace with another. As it's a back yard breeder and this case has gone to court and ruled in the pet owners favour I have no sympathy BUT when do a breeders (I'm talking a genuine breeder) obligations end. Parvo is a terrible disease and in all fairness this breeder may not have known that the pup had parvo as the incubation period can be 4 - 14 days. Here is the article for anyone interested. I think the main thing is that this gorgeous puppy is well and alive. A COURTROOM battle over a sick puppy named Eddie has cost a backyard dog breeder more than $5000. Fay Armstrong was ordered to pay damages over the dog she sold to a customer after it became ill. She appealed the decision but this week the District Court threw out her bid to have it overturned and also ordered her to pay additional legal costs. Ms Armstrong, 57, this year became the first person forced to sign a declaration to never sell diseased animals following numerous complaints about her breeding operation. The landmark legal action was lodged by Consumer Protection. Last year, Ms Armstrong was told she would have to compensate Fiona Schneider for the money she spent on Eddie and for the distress the sale caused. In 2008, Ms Schneider bought the golden retriever pup from Ms Armstrong, who claimed the dog was a pure bred and had been vaccinated. But a few days after the sale, the canine became sick and required substantial veterinary care. It had contracted parvovirus. Ms Schneider told PerthNow she had launched the legal action after Ms Armstrong refused to take any responsibility for Eddie's condition and also refused to pay half the medical bills. In November 2010, a magistrate ordered Ms Armstrong pay $4779.19 in damages. However, she appealed the decision. This week, District Court judge John Wisbey dismissed the application and ordered she pay additional legal costs. Ms Schneider said she was pleased with the latest ruling but feared the battle may not be over. She explained that in court the 57-year-old threatened to take the matter to the Supreme Court. "I understand why people don't want to take legal action in cases like this," Ms Schneider said. "This has gone on for three years. I am still trying to get the original costs. "But I did it because I just felt I had to stand up to her and I didn't want this to happen to anyone else. "If she had of agreed to pay half the medical bills I probably would have left it but she dug her heels in and I felt she shouldn't be allowed to get away with this."
  3. Hi everyone 24 November 2010 was a red letter day for registered migration lawyers, agents and visa applicants - it marked the first successful proceeds of crime action for migration fraud, sending a strong warning that illegal operators in the migration industry will not be tolerated. A Western Australian woman was ordered by the District Court to pay the Commonwealth $50,000 for allegedly practising as an unregistered migration agent. The Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) launched an investigation into the woman after receiving a complaint from one of her clients. The woman was found to be acting without accreditation as a migration agent for dozens of individuals or businesses on temporary skilled migration matters. DIAC says that people with information about migration scams or illegal operators should phone DIAC’s Dob-In Line on 1800 009 623 or visit the department’s website: www.immi.gov.au/contacts/forms/services/services-form.htm Source: Media Release, Minister for Immigration and Citizenship “Migration fraud will not be tolerated” 24 November 2010

  7. My hubby was fined in late 2003 for accepting bribes from a friend. Now my hubby plans to study in australia and later apply for PR status. My son (3 years old) and myself are hoping to accompany him. We are selling our home to finance his studies and relocation expenses. Will my hubby be denied a student visa? And would these affect his PR application in future? He was never jailed but fined only but in Singapore graft is a serious crime and will never be spent! He has got no other convictions at all. This is a tough decision for us as to sell the house and move with our 3 yr old son......any advice or similar experience is much appreciated! Will our chances be better if we use a migration agent instead of applying DIY. Cheers, Singapore Couple Wanting to enrol in Feb 2009 intake
