わずか3週間で3件の大規模な象牙の押収が行われ、残酷な違法象牙の取引所という東アフリカのイメージがさらに悪化しました。

今回の押収は国際動物福祉基金(IFAW - www.ifaw.org)東アフリカ地域事務局長、ジェームズ・イシチの予測を反映しており、「この調子では数週間もしないうちに過去2年間の違法象牙の積荷の2大ルートまたは供給源であるケニアとタンザニアに関わる大規模な象牙押収がまた報告されるでしょう」とイシチは昨日言いました。

今週ドバイの税関は、ケニアから香港に出荷された410万米ドル相当の215本の象牙の積荷を押収したと発表しました。象牙は「赤インゲン豆」と記載された袋に隠されていました。

2週間前の10月31日には、タンザニアで史上最大規模の象牙が押収され、棺や「肥料」と記載された袋に隠された132万米ドル相当の200本以上の象牙を警察が発見しました。密輸品はダルエスサラームからケニアに出荷されるところでした。2名のケニア人を含む3名の容疑者が逮捕されました。
