I say the $600,000 fine isn't enough! Jail time might make him think!

I alerted F&G to the application way back, yet unfortunately they got it through. The first application they put in stated that F&G supported the application, a blatant in your face lie, so that gives you an idea of what these people are like??? Obviously F&G objected and then further applications were made. This is just proof that cash can buy your way out of anything in NZ. I $#@*&&& stinks and Im sick of it!!!!

They should revoke the consent application and prevent people like them from having anything to do with land management IMO!

YES ! IT DOES APPEAR THAT FINES ARE NOT WORKING AS A DETERRENT . BELOW IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE - JUST ONE YEAR AGO !
WHAT CAN BE DONE ? THESE SORT OF BLATANT INFRINGEMENTS ARE JUST SEEN AS WHITE COLLAR CRIME AND TREATED ACCORDINGLY WITH FINES . FRUSTRATING :!:

Dam frustrating, as these pricks know that the worst they will get is a fine and that the profit they will make from there actions will make them a lot of money as well as cover the paltry fine. I think judges need to be made aware of the contempt that these people hold and ensure that their punishment is befitting of the crime.

All these arseholes care about is money so clearly they need to be hurt in the pocket. The simplest way is to (either) make him revert the land/stream to something like it was or charge him for having the work done by others. Then he will have spent his millions for nothing and that will hurt.
