Malaysian Tentacles in Madagascar, Courier Fingers ‘Lizard King’

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Malaysia wildlife trafficking syndicates extend to Madagascar.   Those inside have known this for years.  Last summer, Malaysian authorities intercepted two Malagasy couriers trafficking wildlife to Malaysia.  The women were arrested and sentenced to a year in prison.  One of the women gave birth there.  Remarkably, Malaysian authorities made no significant investigation of the couriers one of whom filed a police report just before her departure last month fingering Anson Wong as her boss, along with a man she knew as “Vijay.”

Wildlife Department director, Abd Rasid Samsudin is accused today in Malaysian press of ‘Sleeping on the Job.’   ROAR, N Surendran, Lawyers for Liberty, and others are right.  Perhilitan has failed to make a single case against a wildlife trafficking kingpin in Malaysia.  There is a reason for it.
