Uk wants tougher penalties for people who attack with acid. Writes that the British minister Amber Rudd Sunday in a submitted piece in the Sunday Times.

In London more and more often attacks with acid. Last Thursday in the capital five acid attack on brommerrijders within an hour and a half. Several of them ran in the face burns.

According to Rudd is acid is increasingly used as a weapon. Therefore, they examine whether the law needs to be tightened and how to care for victims can be improved.

Rudd wants that corrosive substances are now listed as weapons, so that perpetrators “to the full force of the law feel”. Further, she wants the sale of acid to establish links.
