HCM City’s Customs Department yesterday seized nearly 3.8 tonnes of pangolin scales, illegally imported to Cát Lái Port, District 2. The pangolin scales were hidden in bags, in the middle of containers, surrounded by timber blocks in order to escape the attention of authorised agencies. The case is under investigation. Pangolin scales are still consumed in traditional medicine although it is illegal to hunt, trap, keep, kill, transport, sell or advertise pangolins or pangolin products in Việt Nam.— VNA/VNS Photo
