Still we have no answers from either Minister of Natural Resources and Environment G Palanivel or his NRE/Perhilitan cronies as to why they continue to object to an independent audit of their confiscated ivory.
We also still don’t know why the same government people object to the ivory being publicly destroyed.

As I write, I am in Kenya where some days ago, besides a few elephants, I got to see two of the last six Northern white rhinos left on our planet. These wonderful animals had been de-horned to stop poachers killing them. Maybe the same poachers who provide Malaysia with some of its blood ivory.
These rhinos are destined to become extinct. Of this there is not the slightest doubt. That will be the end of this sub-species, forever. Wiped off earth solely because of greed and stupidity.
