Uganda, 27th February 2014—A high court judge in Uganda has ordered 2.9 tonnes of seized African Elephant ivory be returned to a Congolese national for onward export, despite the cargo having entered the country fraudulently declared as coffee and the fact that any onward export would clearly be in stark contravention of international regulations under CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora).
