The Kunjok arrest, the significance of this case

Just a quick follow up for now (please read the previous post for initial details):
Coverage of the Kunjok arrest is starting to increase, you’ll see international exposure soon. The significance of this can not be understated, the arrest of a high level trader has much more impact than continual arrests of ground level poachers and the continuing spate of seizures where people pose with the product for a photo opportunity but thorough ongoing investigation is lacking. Scrutiny of investigation and judicial process is vital. As I mentioned earlier there is a major backstory to this case and it is far from over regarding the need to apprehend others involved. The other main issue is just how many leopards and tigers have died since this 2005 seizure? Hundreds and hundreds and hundreds, that’s how many. That means we’re not doing well enough, we haven’t learnt the lessons of how important it is … by that I mean the political and public will as well as the resource allocation simply isn’t good enough. That has to change. This case can help that happen…
