An article in the NT News about the assault on retired politician Peter Tonyne.
Quoted from the article:
Peter Toyne, 62, who was stabbed in the leg with a sharpened nulla nulla and clubbed across the head several times by a professional thug in front of his wife, made the stunning allegations yesterday.
The retired politician is spearheading a campaign to put counterfeiters of Aboriginal art out of business and close artist sweatshops.
“I won’t bow to intimidation,” he told the Northern Territory News exclusively last night.
“We can’t allow strong-arm tactics to dictate what we do.
“There are a hell of a lot of shonky operators out there _ and some of them are ruthless.”
