Attorney General Delia Lawrie said people who are found to have intentionally or recklessly caused a fire and who create a risk of spreading the fire now face up to 15 years in jail. The new offence will complement other existing offences relating to bushfires including under the Fire and Emergency Act, which has penalties of up to two years imprisonment or $10,000 fine and under the Bushfires Act which has penalties of up to five years imprisonment or $25,000 fine. "Deliberately lit bushfires can have devastating effects on property, lead to the loss of stock and cause lasting damage to the environment," Ms Lawrie said. "These tough new penalties will act as a deterrent for anyone who is considering deliberately lighting a fire. Ms Lawrie said the new laws recognised there are circumstances in which people would be exempted from liability to reflect the unique land management practises in the Territory. "This will ensure that a person who causes fires in the course of activities such as fire fighting or hazard reduction burning will be exempt from liability," she said. "So practices currently permitted or are that are legal will continue. We want to ensure our unique system of land management and fire practise in the Territory continues." Bushfires NT director Steve Sutton said recently that the majority of blazes that firies have battled this fire season have been deliberately lit. Anyone who witnesses a firebug in action is urged to call police on 131 444. Firebugs face 15 years in jail BOOKWORMS across the Top End have helped raise more than $31,700 to help beat MS. During June, July and August, students took part in the MS Readathon to raise sponsorship for Australians living with multiple sclerosis (MS). More than 302 children across South Australia and Northern Territory got into the event, including six-year-old Bradley Eastaway, one of the highest fundraisers in the Darwin region and sixth highest fundraiser in the NT. Young Bradley read more the 40 books to raise the money, and said his favourite books were anything involving space. Moil Primary School was also a big contributor, with the students at the primary school reading more than 215 books and collecting $2760.15 in sponsorship, making it the highest-raising school in Darwin. National MS Readathon manager Jennifer Irvine praised local students getting involved in the event, which celebrated its 30 year anniversary this year. "We've seen many parents who participated as youngsters introducing the MS Readathon to their children," she said. "The MS Readathon has become a tradition in Australian households, where families and communities unite to raise funds and to celebrate the joy of reading."
