Title: Pollution, 'crime' and ill-health impacts
Author(s): Watterson, Andrew
Issue Date: Mar-2015
Citation: Watterson A (2015) Pollution, 'crime' and ill-health impacts, Scottish Justice Matters, 3.2015, 3 (1), pp. 12-13.
Abstract: First paragraph: The Scottish Government recently introduced welcome new laws in 2013 to address environmental crime with on-thespot fines of up to £40,000 and established an environmental crime multi-agency taskforce led by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA). International environmental crime, the waste industry and large scale environmental degradation as well as fly tipping have all been examined (Scottish Government, 2013). However, this may simply be the tip of a much larger and very toxic ‘rubbish dump’ of pollution and just as crime knows no boundaries, neither does pollution.
