Tiger trafficker jailed to 30 months in Hanoi
 
A Hanoi court also imposed suspended sentences, ranging from 24 to 30 months, on three men found to be 41-year-old Nguyen Thi Thanh’s accomplices.
 
Thanh, Tran Van De, 35, Chu Van Bien, 44, and Nguyen Duc Thiep, 39, were charged with “violating regulations protecting rare wild animals”, according to Thanh Xuan District’s People’s Court.
 
Hanoi police and forest rangers raided Thanh’s house in September last year, catching the gang slaughtering a tiger.
 
A search of Thanh’s house uncovered another dead tiger, a tiger skin, tiger bone glue and alcohol, along with bear arms, monkey bones and elephant tusks.
