Verdicts to wildlife criminals

19 april 2016
Primorye. On April 18, two sole traders, detained in 2013 for illegal purchasing and selling of the Amur tiger skins and bones, were sentenced to correction labour for one year term.

 Also, 10 % of the money earned will be withheld to the state revenue.  Over the last three years, 11 verdicts on illegal turnover of the Amur leopard and the Amur tiger and their parts were made. In 2010 – 2015, 13 criminal cases were initiated against tiger and leopard poachers but only six of them were brought to court.
