Supergrasses who crack crime gangs to have jail time cut

PUBLISHED March 29, 2004

Criminals who turn 'supergrass' will have their sentences drastically cut if they testify against gangland associates under an American-style crackdown on organised crime to be announced tomorrow.

Jail terms could be cut by up to two-thirds in exchange for valuable information which helps crack drug smuggling, people trafficking or money laundering rings.
