Guinea Ape Trafficker Arrested, Sent to Prison

Guinea Ape Trafficker Arrested, Sent to Prison

21st Aug 2013 Press Releases

A recent Great Apes Survival Partnership (GRASP) report, Stolen Apes: The Illicit Trade in Chimpanzees, Gorillas, Bonobos and Orangutans , calculates that as many as 10 chimpanzees are killed for every living chimpanzee that is illegally traded. As a result, Diallo’s traffic could have been associated with the death of as many as 5,000 wild chimpanzees.

Diallo was arrested in the early morning hours in Conakry in a joint operation between Interpol’s national bureau, and the conservation organization, GALF (Guinée Application de la Loi Faunique).

Judge Magadouba Sow – who delivered the original sentence against Diallo and his accomplices – issued an order at 7 a.m. that called for the immediate transfer of Diallo to the central prison.
