A member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons in London, Dr Giam dismissed concerns about his business interests. “To me it’s irrelevant. You judge me by what I say, not by whether or not I have ties to the fin industry,” he said.

No Dr. Giam, we judge you by what you do and what your ties are to the industry. Having you in a position to determine the listing of sharks is like having Rush Limbaugh sitting on a panel to regulate the illegal used of prescription drugs.  It’s a conflict of interest. You can’t make money from shark fins and at the same time block regulations protecting sharks and then tell us you’re objective, so stop pissing on our legs and telling us it’s raining.

Giam Choo Hoo is dirty and he needs to be tossed out of CITES. We need objective scientists who do not profit personally from destroying life in our oceans.

Until Giam Choo Hoo is gone, CITES will continue to have zero credibility.

Our oceans are dying and the executioners are in charge of enforcement.

Giam Choo Hoo is an ecological criminal and an eco-terrorist and his victims are endangered species and generations unborn.
