A Chinese citizen was detained yesterday at Maputo International Airport with nine rhino horns hidden in his luggage. The man was going to travel to Vietnam.
The 49-year-old allegedly wrapped nine rhinoceros horns in aluminium foil and mixed them with food products.
Police admits the possibility of this individual being a member of a vast criminal network.
This year alone, the Maputo City Police has registered four similar cases, involving individuals of Asian origin, whose destination is preferably Vietnam.
