Western Cape Police this week arrested a 32-year-old Chinese national for being in possession of abalone and rhino horn. The suspect was arrested at the Cape Town International Airport.

Captain FC van Wyk said the Chinese national was charged under the Nature Conservation and Marine Coastal Resources Act.

The suspect was en-route to Durban when the Border Police anti-smuggling team apprehended him. He was found in possession of five kilograms of rhino horn and chucked abalone.

The suspect is currently in custody and will appear in the Bellville Magistrate’s Court once he has been charged.
