Cai HuimianCustoms1/16/2018honduras rosewood29 ton Guatemala - Hong Kong - ChinaHKSAR v Cai Huimian WKCC 3143/2018West Kowloon MAMagistrate Ada YIMA 40-feet container on a vessel arriving from Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala was selected for a routine Customs inspection. On the bill of lading and the e-manifest, the cargo in the container was declared to be “Natural Rubber” consigned to a local logistics company. Upon inspection, 456 Honduras rosewood logs weighing 29,232 kg in total were found inside the container. Cai Huimian, a part-time employee at a construction materials business headed by her husband, was the real consignee of the container. Cai was listed as the contact person for the shipment and had allegedly received money in exchange for acting as a middleman. Follow-up enquiries revealed that the defendant had never applied for the requisite licence for lawful import of the logs. The defendant was charged with importing specimens of Appendix II species without a licence. She pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 3 months’ imprisonment.3 months' imprisonmentHong Kong Department of Justicehttps://www.doj.gov.hk/en/publications/pdf/doj2018pd_full.pdfhttps://www.occrp.org/en/daily/8569-hong-kong-woman-sentenced-in-rosewood-trafficking-case
