Sweden: Export an illegal fridge and go to jail


The Swedish Government seems to want to make an example, as the Cabinet later today will initiate drafting of a new law that would make it easier to send illegal exporters of electric and electronic tra$h, which we know is a global and profitable business, to court. The new law is also supposed to make it easier for law enforcement to press charges against individuals in the tra$h business for attempted smuggling (right now, the tra$h must leave Sweden for things to become illegal, making it a lot more complicated process for authorities to engage in).

While there will be a while before we see actual proposed legislation, I applaud this, but think that we should also recognize that this is a symptom that cooperation between police forces of involved countries should be strengthened. We can’t just add new legislation to cure an inefficient collaborative environment. International Trash Police Summit now, please!

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware
    of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that
    they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as
    defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people
    can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic however ,
    I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog
    post or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you are interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

    find it very bothersome to inform the truth however I’ll certainly come again again.
