Lusa - Business News - Mozambique: Court dismisses illegal logging appeal




Beira, Mozambique,Aug.5,2022(Lusa)- The Administrative Court in Sofala, central Mozambique, has rejected an appeal filed by Chinese company Kamal Lau Ming accused of trying to smuggle wood seized from its shipyards for illegal logging, said a document seen today by Lusa.
In a ruling, the judges of the Administrative Court said that the company did not meet the requirements for the satisfaction of its application, resulting in the rejection of the appeal.
Following the decision, the seized wood should be sold in a public auction, the court said.
"While the process is ongoing at the Provincial Prosecutor's Office, for the outcome of the sale of the wood in a public auction, the company involved must pay court costs of 50,000 meticais [€765]," the ruling also says.
The case came up last September, when complaints alerted the authorities about illegal logging by Chinese company Kamal Lau Ming for export.
Following the complaint, the National Agency for Environmental Quality Control (Aqua) and the National Institute of Economic Activities (INAE) went to the site.
According to reports from these state entities, part of the wood found in the yard was cut below the recommended diameter, which is 30 centimetres.
Figures from the ministry of land and environment said that in Mozambique, forests cover about 32 million hectares, or about 40% of the country's total area, of which 17.2 million hectares have the potential for producing wood.
The Mozambican state loses about US$200 million per year (over €195 million) due to illegal logging, according to official figures.
