Anson Wong jailed for 6 months.
Read the press comments:
"We have to get tough with wildlife smugglers as the world is watching how serious we are about tackling the scourge."
"I don't want to go to jail again." -- Those were the words uttered by Anson Wong slightly over a year ago to me.
I was confident that he said that with full knowledge that he is untouchable in Southeast Asia - one of the regions which had become a safe playground for the flamboyant wildlife trafficker.
There is an undoubted air of cockiness in Wong. His underlying message was: Catch me if you can!"
"Anson Wong, known as the "Lizard King," was fined 190,000 ringgit ($60,000) and sentenced to six months' in prison Monday for exporting 95 live boa constrictors without a permit".
