So, we have ESCAS breaches occurring over and over, to the point that Wellard wants someone (the importers, over which Australia has no control) penalised - but still the government does not act. ESCAS was set up to prevent breaches. Consistent and recurrent breaches occur over and over again - always in evidence when Animals Australia just happens to turn up - so presumably when they are not there either, i.e. all the time. And the Australian Government does nothing, again and again. This is big business. Exporters make a truckload of money, and like any other business that makes truckloads of money, they should be forced to follow the rules and be penalised when those rules are breached. Take away their licences, or start fining them so much that it becomes a commercial imperative to toe the line. Simple.
