Elephant Action League’s partner Wildlife Justice Commission (WJC), in The Hague, has engaged the government of Vietnam on a large ivory & rhino horn trafficking network

The Wildlife Justice Commission has presented the authorities of Viet Nam with a Map of Facts regarding a large organized criminal network trading in endangered wildlife species.

This criminal network, based in Viet Nam, engages in transnational trade in large quantities of wildlife products from many endangered species, including rhino horn, ivory and tiger parts.

The Map of Facts has been designed to support national law enforcement authorities in taking swift action against wildlife crime and forms a central component in the Wildlife Justice Commission’s operating parameters, the Accountability Panel Procedure.

The Map of Facts delivered to the authorities of Viet Nam opens the dialogue on this case with a view to implementing the necessary national law enforcement action against this criminal network.

The Wildlife Justice Commission is currently researching other wildlife crime cases globally.

Elephant Action League’s co-founder Mr. Andrea Crosta is among WJC’s supervisory board members.
