On 28 September, the Environmental Investigation Agency reported that Chinese national Yunhua Lin was the head of the ‘Lin-Zhang gang’, which had been operating out of Malawi for at least a decade.  He was arrested in August 2019.  He was sentenced to 14 years for dealing in rhino horn, and 6 years for money laundering – the sentences will run concurrently.
