`The Prime Minister’s brother, Stan Howard, will be prosecuted for chopping down up to 70 endangered trees on his property at Bowral in the southern New South Wales highlands.

Wingecarribee Shire Council spokesman Larry Whipper says Mr Howard and the contractor who bulldozed the trees could face a jail term and a $100,000 fine.’
