Significant progress was made over this period on all aspects of LAGA’s collaboration with
MINFOF, with tangible achievements not only in the fields of investigation, arrest and prosecution but also in media exposure, government relations and international activities. There was more focus on the fight against corruption, beginning of replication in Chad, and regional enforcement in Congo – Brazzaville, Central African Republic and Gabon.
For every 6.5 days a major wildlife dealer was arrested, 89% stayed behind bars from the day of arrest and corruption was observed and fought in many of the cases. For every single day a media piece was put on national news and recorded. 35 dealers were prosecuted and over $100,000 was to be paid as damages to MINFOF. (Source: LAGA Annual Report 2011)
