Environmental Court

Project Description

DGFC has been working closely with the Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak, Tan Sri Richard Malanjum in order to raise awareness about environmental issues, in particular wildlife trafficking, illegal hunting and logging. DGFC’s director became part of a supporting committee set up by the High Court in Sabah and Sarawak with the goal of establishing an Environmental Court. He presented the keynote address at the first seminar on environmental issues organised by the High Court.
Similar seminars continued throughout 2016 and 2017, organised by the High Court and by the US Department of Justice, Office of Overseas Prosecutorial Development, Assistance and Training. An outcome of these activities was the co-production of short videos that focused on wildlife crime
