The International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol) has posted information on two Kenyans wanted for crimes related to illegal wildlife trade.
Nicholas Mweri, 44, and Samuel Bakari, 29, are being sought for allegedly illicitly dealing in wildlife trophies and organised criminal activities.
The brothers, who went into hiding in April 2015, have been on Interpol’s Red Notices list since 2016. They are wanted in connection with the exportation of 511 pieces of ivory seized in Thailand in 2015.
A Red Notice is a request to law enforcements worldwide to locate and arrest a person wanted either by a country or an international tribunal, pending extradition, surrender or similar legal action. It is not an arrest warrant but an international wanted persons notice.
