A syndicate that has been obtaining rhino hunting permits under false pretences has been unearthed by Media 24’s investigative journalists. Basically, Marnus Steyl, a 37-year-old South African lion breeder and safari operator, is alleged to be the international syndicate’s key supplier of horn to the East. How? By recruiting Thai prostitutes and strippers from clubs in Pretoria and Midrand to pose as “hunters”, whom South African law legally allows to shoot one rhino per year, in sham rhino trophy hunts. These “legally” acquired rhino horn trophies, bought at R65 000 per kilogram, and eventually sold for up to $35 000 per kilogram, would be shipped from South Africa to south-east Asia. Absinthe to help with the guilt, Marnus?

OSCAP has pro bono attorneys working to reinstate charges against Steyl and our help is needed.
OUR FIRST STEP IS TO E-MAIL OUR REQUEST TO HAVE CHARGES REINSTATED.
