That sentence is a joke! When he will get out he will do it again (IF by a miracle he does not it will still be a joke of a sentence) and it won't stop anybody from doing what he did!

Seven months imprisonment isn't very long , but I know it is a huge improvement, considering so many others have killed so many orangutans to steal their babies and have not been prosecuted at all.

yes, thanx Mick. In the least a precedent is set. Perhaps if enough traffickers are halted for a time, some will give up...

Good GOOD news!!! When you know that orangutans should have been protected legally since 1924, you can realize the victory that sentence represents! I just hope it goes on like that!!
