Interpol has release a video warning about the threat that illegal deforestation poses to Romania’s natural resources and how law enforcement are fighting back.

Interpol says that the criminals responsible for illegal logging and illicit timber trafficking are not just destroying biodiversity but they also threaten the livelihoods of those reliant on forest resources. According to them, criminal land clearing can cause landslides and deny forest-dependent communities access to food, medicine and fuel.

Interpol further argues that forestry crime involves criminal activity in the forestry sector, covering the entire supply chain, from harvest and transportation to processing and selling. It also refers to criminal offences that facilitate such activity, including document fraud, corruption and money laundering.
