        中国海关通报了近年来侦破的两起团伙走私象牙案件。而这些象牙均是由非洲走私至中国。

        据新华社报道,经过长期侦察,中国厦门海关成功捣毁两大象牙走私团伙,查获走私象牙近12吨。

        其中一个走私团伙的主犯拥有一家合法象牙商店,但由于每年经批准销售的象牙配额有限,他通过走私获得更多象牙。这个团伙中的其他几位成员在8月份被捕,近2吨象牙被查缴。几批被查缴的象牙均被怀疑与该走私团伙有关,其中包括2011年查获的4起象牙走私案。

        经调查,另外一个走私团伙涉嫌在2012年末走私4.2吨象牙。

        本周早些时候,坦桑尼亚官方宣布,他们上周六(11月2日)从3个中国商人在达累斯萨拉姆的房子中,缴获了706根象牙。
