“We have information that the decision to export the monkey when Musa Nordin was still the DG. We have information that there is connection with the company. He has close contacts with the Department of Wildlife. Clearly there was some hanky panky going on there with elements of corruption,” he said.
According to Roar, each exported monkey brings in RM250. The macaques are exported, mostly to China, for animal testing and vivisection.
Roar alleged that the export contract of over 20,000 monkeys annually was given by the Environment Ministry to a company, Sunny K-9 Sdn Bhd. A check revealed that the company, based in Ipoh, is a dog-training academy.
Why can't our government servants live a life of integrity and retire with dignity?
Why do they want to continue in these corrupt ways?
