In one of her classes, Dr Ilze Keevy, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Constitutional Law and Philosophy of Law at the University of the Free State (UFS), invited Adv. Antoinette Ferreira, a Senior Prosecutor at the Special Prosecution Unit of the Director of Public Prosecution: Free State, this week to present an interesting and topical lecture about Organised Environmental Crime and Biodiversity. The lecture was, amongst others, attended by LL.B., LL.M. and LL.D. students in Environmental Law, as well as master’s students in Environmental Management.

Adv. Ferreira, who is currently working on one of the world’s most important syndicate cases about rhinoceros hunting, dealt with environmental law in her lecture, with the focus on organised crime syndicates. Issues like how syndicates operate, the prosecution of syndicates and all the problems related to the destruction of our South African biodiversity formed part of her lecture. – Leonie Bolleurs
