The director and vice director of an import/export company were sentenced today in a Ho Chi Minh City court to three years imprisonment for their involvement in smuggling 2.4 tons of ivory into Vietnam.
The ivory was seized in July 2012 in Saigon port from a container hidden amongst cow hides. The shipment originated in Mozambique. A third suspect is reported wanted by police in connection with the case.
