Terrorism, Transnational Crime and Corruption Center (TraCCC)

We know from research that those engaged in high reward, low risk forms of illicit trade and organized crime often see short prison sentences as the cost of doing business. Will that be the case here?Chumlong Lemtongthai, a key figure in the notorious Xaysavang rhino horn and wildlife trafficking network, was released from a South African prison last night and deported to Thailand. Chumlong was famously sentenced to 40 years in prison in 2012 for his involvement in a pseudo-hunting ring documented in "Killing for Profit". That sentence was later reduced by South Africa's Supreme Court of Appeal to 13 years. He served just over half that. This photo was taken as he was escorted aboard an Etihad flight last night en route to Thailand. More on Chumlong here: killingforprofit.com/?s=Chumlong+Lemtongthai ... See MoreSee Less
