Thailand | Major wildlife trafficker arrested

Police in Thailand last week detained a key figure in one of the world’s most notorious wildlife trafficking syndicates, accused of smuggling large numbers of rhino horns and elephant tusks from Africa to Asia.


Boonchai Bach, who also goes by the name Bach Van Minh, was arrested Friday at his operational base in Nakhon Pathom province, for allegedly trafficking 14 rhino horns from Africa to Thailand last month. The case also implicated a Thai official, a Chinese national and a Vietnamese courier.
