Dear Mr Scanlon,

In view of all your recent statement in the press "This sends a very strong message to those who seek to rob countries of their natural resources that the global law enforcement community recognizes that it must work together, led by INTERPOL, to bring these environmental criminals to justice." I was wondering what message you think you send to the wildlife traffickers when CITES offices in Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia (where the office is alleged to suffer from rampant corruption and involvement in the wildlife trade) permit those who trade in orangutans to go unpunished?

Not only has CITES abandoned these 12 orangutans to the fate you see in this poster http://www.facebook.com/l/efc46_USi3_Sz6UN-U7PoRM_oEA;naturealert.blogspot.com/
no one is ever prosecuted. I gather CITES shows the same lack of concern for gorillas and chimpanzees. All of which rather suggests any claims you make in the press about being tough on law enforcement appear rather less than convincing don’t you think?

Until CITES and ASEAN-WEN have these orangutans returned home to Indonesia, you will both be hearing a lot more from me.
I am waiting to see both organisations ‘walk their talk’, show some integrity and save the 12 orangutans from a life of torture and exploitation as in the photos below. I’d also like to see Interpol begin by investigating a good number of CITES offices.

Yours sincerely,

A Friend of the Orangutans
