UN Report: 90% of illegal logging may be linked to organised crime
OCTOBER 8, 2012
Illegal logging is not only killing the planet – it is supporting organised crime too. Back in 2010 we reported on the case of Moroccan activist Mohammed Attaoui who was facing imprisonment for his stance against illegal logging. Living in the Moroccan Atlas Mountains, Attaoui insisted that ‘mafia-style’ corruption was behind illegal logging which threatened the protected cedar of Morocco.
