Soooooooo…what do we think bout this picture???? It certainly does make a bold statement. I’m gonna guess the Minister wanted to convey that illegal cutting/transportation/selling of rosewood will not be tolerated. On the other hand, this idea that the wood had to be burned because nobody could be trusted to store it properly kinda STANDS OUT MORE. There must be some policy already in place to deal with confiscated goods, yes???? And if there is to be an investigation, why burn the evidence? And why not turn around and use this wood for some other purpose?? Furniture in a museum….material for some artist????

This action belongs on the Ridiculist. Confiscated valuables like this are auctioned off and the money goes to the agency in charge of enforcement. We have computers, we have accountants. After the auction the money is taken to the ATV dealer and rangers are issued more equipment for enforcement. Nine year olds run this country.
This is disheartening to see. Why burn this very valuable wood when it could be put to so much good use. How heartless? …and the war goes on
It seems this action was impulsive and not thought through…perhaps now that there has been such a strong reaction against it, something different will be implemented next time.
