Annual report 2006

Very good progress was made over this period on all aspects of LAGA’s collaboration with the Ministry of Forests and Fauna (MINFOF), with tangible achievements not only in the fields of investigation, arrest and prosecution but also in media exposure, government relations and international activities. 

This year for every 8 days a major wildlife dealer was arrested, 87% stayed behind bars from the day of arrest. Every single day a media piece was put on national news and recorded. This year saw the maximum sentence of 3 years imprisonment laid down by the courts of Cameroon, and this was given to military personnel, previously thought to be above civil law.
