Government Probes ‘Chinese-linked’ Ivory Smugglers

President Museveni has requested for the more investigation into Uganda Wildlife Authority to see if its staff planned with Chinese diplomats to export unlawful ivory.

It ought to be noticed that 5 senior officials were suspended two years back after it was found that seized ivory had disappeared from Uganda Wildlife Authority store room.

The Police have made many large seizures of ivory from that point forward – some bound for Singapore.

Uganda is believed to be a main travel point for trafficking ivory from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Central African Republic and South Sudan.

Be that as it may, the government of Chinese has invalidated the conspiracy affirmation saying it’s “absolutely unfounded”.

“We have thorough controls and laws on governmental officials, embassy staff, and going to groups to disallow them from buying or taking part in [smuggling] activities,” foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying told reporters.

“We will punish them in the event that they are engaged such exercises,” she included.
