Smuggling line for highly endangered species dismantled between Indonesia and The Netherlands.

In 2016, a container filled with highly endangered species protected by the CITES treaty was found in Rotterdam harbour. A Joint Investigation Team consisting of law enforcement officials from The Netherlands and Indonesia was formed. The Police Liaison Officer at the Netherlands Embassy worked for 2 years with Dutch Police and Indonesian counterparts to successfully take down the smuggling line in endangered species from Bali to NL.
