Mozambique to extradite Tanzanian citizen over poaching

The report says elephants could face extinction if the current rate of poaching continues

Mozambican justice authorities said here on Sunday that they are preparing the extradition of a Tanzanian citizen condemned for falsification of documents and involvement in the poaching of animals in Mozambique’s national reserve.

The 39-year-old Tanzanian, identified as Matso Chupi, is said to have committed several crimes including the killing of elephants in Tanzania and Mozambique.

Tanzanian police have been seeking to arrest him since 2013, according to a press release issued by the national administration of conservation areas.

According to the release, this will be the second time for Mozambique to extradite prisoners to Tanzania, following the extradition of 10 Tanzanians convicted for illegal research and exploration of mineral resources in the Niassa National Reserve. Enditem
