The following linked seizures have been sampled for DNA, with analysis completed to determine origin within Africa of the ivory.  Each numbered seizure is identified by a combination of three letter country ‘ISO’ for the country where the seizure was made, the month/year of the seizure, and the seizure weight in kilogrammes. The name of the primary accused is added where known and/or where a prosecution was initiated.  As example, seizure #1 was made in the United Arab Emirates in May 2013 and the reported seizure weight was 1478 kilogrammes.
