STATEMENT: RSPB VIDEO CASE

A statement was made by RSPB Scotland this morning (May 12th) regarding the handling of a legal case by the Crown Office.

Please see, here, a SGA statement regarding this case.

A Spokesman for The Scottish Gamekeepers Association said: "The SGA has no membership interest in this case and has an unequivocal approach to wildlife crime. Our members are made acutely aware of what is required in setting traps. Those who fail to comply should consider the affects this has on the reputation of others in the profession.
Judgements on what is admissible or not in terms of deploying video surveillance are judgements to be made by independent law officers, qualified to make them, not membership organisations like ourselves.”
