Wildlife trafficker back in business

Al Jazeera uncovers evidence that Lizard King, released by Malaysia last year, is trading in endangered species again.

    A year ago, the world’s most notorious wildlife trafficker, known as the Lizard King, was released from a Malaysian jail.

    Now Al Jazeera has uncovered evidence showing he is back at his old game - selling off the world’s endangered species.

    The year-long investigation into the Lizard King took Al Jazeera's 101 East team from Africa through to Asia.

    Steve Chao reports on the Lizard King's trail from Penang, Malaysia.
