Dear Friend of the Orangutans,

Sorry to trouble you again, but if you read the letter below before sending it you will see the need for writing and the urgency.

The scale of the wildlife trade (and cruelty as well as corruption involved) in Malaysia is on a scale the National Geographic article only touches on; it is far, far worse. Things I cannot even tell you about, but haunt me all the time. Hence this and other letters we send.

Thank you again for caring and helping. It is always appreciated.
If we don’t try, I guarantee no one else will.

Sean

Mr. Mohamad Zamri Hashim
Deputy Superintendent
Royal Malaysian Police HQ
Bukit Aman
Malaysia


Dear Mr. Hashim,

I am delighted to see you are a senior policemen, as well as Malaysia’s Interpol and ASEAN-WEN representative.
In you I hope we have someone we can trust.

Would you please investigate the following and report back to me on your findings as soon as possible?

In January 2010 the prestigious National Geographic magazine made some scathing criticisms of the Department of Wildlife and National Parks, commonly known as PERHILITAN.
This is the article. http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2010/01/asian-wildlife/christy-text/1

Corruption was (still is) believed to be rampant in Perhilitan. Its complicity in the illegal wildlife trade is widely acknowledged within Malaysia as well as internationally; it has been going on for years.

MACC (the anti-corruption agency) claim to have investigated Perhilitan, though there is no evidence of this. Sadly, MACC also have a reputation for turning a blind eye and/or deaf ear to such matters.
The NRE are very aware of the allegations against Perhilitan, but their refusal to investigate Perhilitan is a cause for concern don’t you think? Is this not a police matter?

This year Nature Alert have been pressing Perhilitan to announce whether they intend to prosecute the Taiping Zoo over this issue. The alleged offence took place some 18 months ago.
http://www.facebook.com/l/43ccdyWm7rfuN5HEeJJGC5SVBfw;thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=%2F2009%2F6%2F30%2Fnation%2F4207442&sec=nation <http://www.facebook.com/l/43ccdyWm7rfuN5HEeJJGC5SVBfw;thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=%2F2009%2F6%2F30%2Fnation%2F4207442&sec=nation>

Perhilitan claim the file on this case and another recent one concerning a Clouded Leopard is in the hands of the Attorney General. All attempts to elicit from the AG the present state of both cases have proved fruitless. Worse still, a whistle-blower on the inside has alleged to Nature Alert the Attorney General is waiting for the controversy to die down before he drops the case for political reasons.

In view of the stated aims of ASEAN-WEN and Interpol to stamp out the illegal trade in wildlife, and you being a senior Malaysian policeman, I can think of no better person to call on to ensure the wildlife protection law is enforced without favour or corruption.

Would you agree with me that this will be an excellent opportunity for both ASEAN-WEN and Interpol to demonstrate their commitment to cracking down on the wildlife trade?

I very much look forward to seeing what progress you make with my enquiries.

Thank you.
Yours sincerely.

A Concerned Citizen

P.S. Zoos in Malaysia are suspected to be up to their necks in the illegal wildlife trade.
