    Possession of wallat patta still illegal here, recently I read a news article in DM, walla patta can be exported, was it true?

    Police and Customs doing a good job now as they are free of political pressure and no interference to release suspects by politicos.

    Again ! One can see how the Chinese are always involved in destroying our fauna and flora (walla patta, rare orchids and water plants, ivory, leopard teeth and claws, turtles, tortoises, bird nests, reptiles and ornamental fish)
