Original text on this topic:
All of the horn for the North Yemen in the last year or so comes from Khartoum. From July 1983, the price in Khartoum has risen by 40%, and poaching has therefore increased again in East Africa. Some of the authorities in Khartoum and Sanaa are corrupt - dealers simply bribe the Sanaa customs. As the North Yemeni government has a huge problem with the smuggling of liquor, cars, petrol etc., rhino horn falls far down the list of priorities!
The problem cannot be tackled in North Yemen, it must be tackled in the Sudan. Unfortunately, some Juba officials are corrupt, and the CITES and IUCN officials in Switzerland know this very well. Most of the horn that moves along the Khartoum - Sanaa-route comes from Africa north of the Zambezi river.
