Perhilitan still up to their old tricks

December 19, 2011

FMT LETTER

From Arjunan Rawichandran, via e-mail

Regardless of regular and stinging criticisms for putting personal friendships before the welfare of animals, it appears Perhilitan are wanting to show their old friends at the A’Famosa golf resort they can still count on them for favours’.

Moves are afoot to return orangutans to A’Famosa. This is despite the resort’s management having in the past been caught in possession of illegally obtained orangutans, and they were never prosecuted.

In more recent times, only after a barrage of public complaints did Perhilitan remove all the orangutans from A’Famosa where they had been held indoors for a year, in disgusting conditions, and in breach of our law.

Along with many others I look forward to a day when Perhilitan will enforce the law and stop favouring their many friends who trade in and abuse animals.

Giving orangutans back to A’Famosa would be like returning to their illegal paymasters and traffickers, children rescued from the illegal trade and a life of physical abuse.
