Petition Remove the prosecution rights of the RSPCA
At the moment the RSPCA abuse their position to seize and prosecute innocent and vulnerable owners of animals, leading to extortionate costs. A number of these convictions are made on the evidence of lies by the RSPCA. It is wrong for the same organisation to investigate and prosecute.
To get a fair trial of the accused it would be better for the Crown Prosecution Services to take any prosecution forward
