Massive haul of illegal ivory found in Hong Kong

Massive haul of illegal ivory found in Hong Kong

A “possible record” amount of ivory has been seized by customs officials in Hong Kong from a Malaysian shipping container.

Around 7.2 tonnes of elephant tusks were found buried under frozen fish in a 40ft container by officials at the Kwai Chung Customhouse Cargo Examination Compound. 

The Hong Kong regional government said it has subsequently arrested a man and two women in connection with the find. 

Under Hong Kong law, anyone found guilty of importing or exporting ivory and other banned goods faces a maximum fine of HK$2m (£200,000) and seven years in prison.
