The Hague, 17 August 2016: The Wildlife Justice Commission’s investigation into wildlife trafficking hub Nhi Khe in Viet Nam* revealed a number of new wildlife trafficking methodologies being employed by organized criminal networks trading in endangered species globally.
This specific operational intelligence was extracted from the investigation Case File already presented to the Viet Namese government. It contains information on new trafficking methodologies (not the main body of evidence) which may be relevant in understanding and tackling other international wildlife trafficking cases.
It has been circulated to key international law enforcement agencies, international governmental and national organisations.
- At 240 pages, this intelligence report represents only a fraction of the overall Case File (over 5,000 pages and including extensive audio / visual evidence).
With the industrial scale of wildlife crime affecting all corners of the globe, the Wildlife Justice Commission is committed to sharing information to best effect to ensure wildlife criminals are brought to justice.
