PHU YEN (VNS)— Krong Trai forest rangers have seized nearly 600 logs of giang huong (pterocarpus pedatus pierre) timber, illegally stored at a local house in central Phu Yen Province.
Nguyen Tien Dat, 41, had been storing the timber and failed to show legal documents to prove the stockpile's origin.
It is the largest amount of timber found to be illegally stored at a local house in the province so far.
The case is currently under investigation.
Giang huong is precious 2A timber. Special permission is required from authorised agencies to transport or trade the material. — VNS
