This case file is compiled by highly experienced law enforcement and legal experts. It is a highly actionable, highly detailed case file.

Should the presentation of the case file not result in any true law enforcement actions such as the prosecution of high-level wildlife perpetrators, the Wildlife Justice Commission will follow a series of steps which can ultimately result in a Public Hearing being held in the Peace Palace in The Hague, The Netherlands.
