The NSW Labor Government has promised more power to judges to deal with racist graffiti if re-elected and mentioned that up to 20 serious anti-Semitic incidents are reported annually.

Although $100 million is spent on dealing with the problem, Liberal opposition sources say that it is not enough and say they will introduce much tougher penalties for those involved in producing racist and offensive graffiti on NSW buildings and walls. They promise an on line reporting service and penalties for juveniles which will include them cleaning off their own work.

The current Labor Premier, Kristina Keneally mentioned in her announcement that a database was maintained of anti-Semitic graffiti incidents.
