Sea Shepherd :: CITES – A New Hope?

Secretary General John Scanlon of the CITES Secretariat (left) and the Standing Committee (right). Photo: CITES In March this year, Captain Paul Watson signed a letter addressed to all the members of the CITES Animals Committee, who were meeting in Geneva. Attached to that letter was a damning investigative report, highlighting the blatant conflict of interests of a Singaporean vet, Dr. Giam Choo Hoo. Dr. Giam has been within CITES as the Alternate Representative for Asia, a low-profile position that no one else really runs for, but still provides him with access to the rest of CITES.

Dr. Giam is also a representative of the Singapore and Hong Kong Shark Fin Traders.
