The proceedings against Harry Sissen grind on slowly
This means additional delay in the repatriation of the Lear's Macaws to Brazil
The proceedings against Harry Sissen grind on remorselessly slowly. He has now appealed against the decision in the recent confiscation hearing, which is holding up the hearing on the livestock confiscated nearly four years ago. This means additional delay in the repatriation of the Lear's Macaws to Brazil. Repatriation can not take place until the Crown Court awards legal ownership of the macaws to HM Customs and Excise. Boris Johnson, Conservative MP for Henley-on-Thames and also Editor of the Spectator magazine has joined the fray and is demanding "speedy repatriation". The new Brazilian Ambassador is also planning to follow up this matter energetically. A report, which appeared in the Times today is reproduced on the news page.
