The case against a suspected rhino poaching kingpin has been postponed in the Kempton Park Magistrate’s Court.

Thai national Chumlong Lemtonthai appeared briefly in court yesterday.

He stands accused of organising a poaching syndicate that abused hunting permit loop holes by hiring prostitutes to pose as trophy hunters.

The State says they are still gathering evidence and may add another accused.

The case resumes on the 8th of November.
