Mega trial against illegal animal trade starting in Utrecht

From today onward, the court in Utrecht will be occupied with a trial against four supposed animal traders. The prosecutor sees the men as part of a criminal organisation, which has been trading exotic birds illegally. The trial will probably take four days.

One of the suspects lives in Woerden and is believed to have made a hundred thousand euro’s of the trade. The prosecutor states that the men have not only traded the birds illegally, but also treated them irresponsibly.

However, Utrechter Sebastiaan Scheffer does not expect a shocking outcome of the trial. Scheffer, a bird trader himself, has been following the case and did not see anything highly illegal.
