  2. GSPCA hosts 40 animal charities for conference

    Steve Byrne, GSPCA manager, said the focus of the meeting was on microchipping with leading experts from the sector visiting Guernsey to head a discussion panel.

    A strong advocate of microchipping he said: "Without doubt the hardest thing we have to deal with nearly on a daily basis is when a cat is killed and it isn't microchipped as it proves extremely difficult to contact an owner."

  8. Care Inquiry: Deputy defends record

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Jersey's former home affairs minister Deputy Andrew Lewis has denied he deliberately misled the States and an inquiry into care abuse on the island.

    It comes as the island's former police chief says he has written to the chief minister asking to make a formal criminal complaint over his suspension from office, during Deputy Lewis's tenure as minister.

    Graham Power told the campaign group Voice for Children of his plans following last week's publication of a care inquiry report, which detailed decades of slavery, bullying and abuse in the care system in Jersey.

    The report concluded the former home affairs minister cannot be prosecuted for allegedly lying to the Care Inquiry and the States about what happened.

  11. Jersey trusts 'no place' to hide proceeds of crime

    Rob Byrne

    BBC News Online

    Jersey's Attorney General Robert MacRae QC has said the recent recovery of £4m from a fraudster who used a Jersey trust, shows the island is committed to fighting financial crime.

    However, critics of the island's offshore industry believe the secrecy offered in places like Jersey facilitates the laundering of money from criminal activity.

    The millions recovered from Adeel Mirza, 47, will be split equally between Jersey and the UK Home Office.

    The financial advisor was sentenced to six years for fraud.

    Prosecutors arranged the sale of nine of Mirza's UK houses, which were all registered to a trust in Jersey.

  13. More than 1,000 drivers subject to drink drive checks

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Jersey Police have checked more than 1,000 drivers so far in their summer drink drive campaign.

    Five people have been arrested for drink driving in Jersey since the 1st of July.

    Two of the drivers arrested were as a result of calls to the police by the public.

    The campaign runs until this Friday, however the police say they'll continue to check for drink driving throughout the year.

  14. Care Inquiry 'adds weight' to calls for Bailiff role change

    BBC Radio Jersey

    A political commentator has said the recent findings of the Jersey Care Inquiry has given extra weight to the argument for changing the dual role of the Bailiff.

    The position involves being both the island's senior judge and civic head of the Island while at the same time acting as presiding officer of the island's parliament, similar to the speaker of the house at Westminster.

    In 2000, John Henwood was a member of the panel which reviewed the system of government for the Clothier Review.

    He said there must be changes if Jersey's ever to escape the perception that it's a closed and secretive society where abuses are swept under the carpet.

    Although political reform wasn't part of the remit of the recently published care inquiry, Mr Henwood said it reinforced the call for change at the top of government.

    "It was a decision we haven't taken lightly," Vance told BBC Radio Guernsey. "I think it's probably the right thing, certainly for this year - I'm sure we'll look at it again next year."
