Apparently a probe is underway as to why more than two tons of ivory worth $3.6 million had not only been loaded on to the Emirates plane that had landed in BKK but also had been mis-declared as "telecom equipment". Apparently the crate, which had 239 elephant tusks, had originated in Nairobi and had a final destination of Laos.

Emirates announced that they have launched an investigation of their own as to what happened and were fully cooperating with Thai authorities in the biggest customs seizure in Thai history.
