Story summary: "A Luxury trade" investigates the resurgence of rhino poaching as a result of the growing demand for rhino horn across Asia, and the huge financial rewards. Lázaro painstakingly examines criminal proceedings records, and interviews National Park rangers and members of the police force. His dramatic findings unveil the extent to which some of the Mozambican Border Patrol Service are turning a blind eye to cross-border poaching expeditions of their citizens into South Africa, and supplying some of the weapons.
