Finally, in February of this year, Glan along with two accomplices was found guilty in Tanzania by Kisutu Court magistrate Huruma Shaidi. She and her two accomplices were each sentenced to fifteen years in prison, with two years extra if they don’t each pay an 11.8 million dollar fine. The fine, according to the magistrate, is equal to twice the market value of the elephant tusks the prosecution was able to link to their smuggling ring directly. All three defendants have appealed the decision.
