Publicație - septembrie 13, 2018
A total of 12,487 cases of illegal logging were identified nationwide in 2017, i.e. an average of 34 cases/day, representing a 32% increase compared to the previous year.

An analysis of the data reveals a significant increase in the number of criminal offences and a moderate decrease in the number of civil penalties recorded in 2017 as compared to 2016. The explanation lies both in the higher number of illegal harvesting cases and in the greater seriousness of the infringements.
