Rhino Poaching – for Horn

“Chumlong Lemtongthai, 43, has been described as a “leading figure” in international rhino poaching. He was arrested in Johannesburg after a year-long investigation, officials said.

There has been a sharp increase in rhino killings in recent years to fuel the demand in Asia, where it is used in traditional medicine. As well as traditional Chinese medicine, rhino horn is also used for decoration and to produce luxury goods.

Last week, Europol uncovered an Irish organised crime group illegally trading rhino horn worth tens of thousands of euros as far afield as China.”

Interesting to see what sentence will be served. Good work on catching the scumbag.
