INCREASED PENALTIES FOR ENDANGERED WILDLIFE OFFENCES
People convicted of trading in endangered species, their parts and their derivatives will face up to five years in prison under new laws introduced today.
The new laws, which come into effect on 21 July, will bring with them stronger powers for police officers in fighting wildlife crime, including powers of arrest, entry, search and seizure.
