Ivory trader fined just £1,375 for selling whale and dolphin bone

Ivory trader fined just £1,375 for selling whale and dolphin bone | Save our Rhino and all animals...this is what it looks like!!!!! | Scoop.it

A Battersea man has been fined just £1,375 despite admitting to illegally trading ivory, whale and dolphin bone and marine turtle shell online. Detectives from the Met Police's Wildlife Crime Unit began investigating Alick Brown, 30, from Worfield Street, Battersea, in May 2012 after Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) raised concerns about two companies. The companies, Arctic Antiques and Ice Antiques, were being run by Brown under an assumed name and traded on eBay.

Siam Poulsen (Lucas)'s curator insight, January 29, 4:12 AM

Alick Brown had to pay only 1,375 for illegaly tradng ivory, whale and dolphin bone and marine turtle shell online.  Doesn't illegal mean that you have serious consequences or you could possibly go to jail for it? 

Alick traded all these illegal items on Ebay, which amazes me because shouldn't Ebay have some sort of security chekc on what their customers are selling online.  

Siam Poulsen (Lucas)'s curator insight, February 2, 3:49 AM

This Battersea man killed innocent animals and illegaly traded ivory, whale and dolphin bounce amd marin turltle shell online.  He should have been fined way more than how much he was.  HE traded them on Ebay which should have a security check which chekcs what their cuztomers are selling online.  I thought that doing something illegal had serious consequences, not just a fine of 1,375 piunds.  I thought that you could potentially go to jail, or be fined a lot mroe than that.  I am surpirsed how easy this man got away. 

Julia Connor's curator insight, February 7, 2:55 PM

This is a joke!! How are we supposed to stop people dealing in ivory and other animal bone when they have so much to gain and so little to lose WHEN they are caught!
