Thai airport officials linked to rhino trade: Police
BANGKOK (AFP) - Thai authorities said on Tuesday they would seek arrest warrants for three police officers allegedly involved in trafficking rhino horn through Bangkok's main airport.
The horn was brought into Suvarnabhumi Airport in January by Vietnamese migrant workers paid US$500 (S$622) per trip, said Mr Narasak Hemnithi, commander of the Natural Resources Environmental Crime Division.
"After arriving in Bangkok they were asked to put the rhino horn on a trolley and leave it somewhere nobody could see and then police would come and collect it," he told AFP.
"We have evidence, especially closed circuit television footage," he added.
