The WJC served a Case File on the governments of Viet Nam and China outlining the criminal activities of a network of 30 individuals responsible for trafficking in approximately USD 15 million in ivory and rhino horn. During this investigation, nine bank accounts used in the laundering of proceeds of the trafficking were identified and provided to the relevant authorities.
The work of Indian, Bangladeshi, and Malaysian authorities, supported by the WJC, had a major impact on the trafficking of freshwater turtles and tortoises out of South Asia. Networks that have previously operated in the shadows were identified and dismantled and have now become fragmented. Significant intelligence has been collected on how they operate. The WJC continues to collaborate with authorities to stop the trafficking of these critically endangered species.
