CITES is the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species, Flora & Fauna. It is the UN body created to control the trade or ban the trade in endangered species. Dr Giam Choo Hoo is the Alternative Representative for Asia within CITES. He advises the committee as to what gets and what doesn't get protection.

He has been discovered to be working with the Shark Fin Industry and uses his position to lobby within CITES against any protection for sharks. He is using the power that he has been entrusted with, to work against the protection of endangered species.

Frank Pope of the Times of London interviewed Dr. Giam on March 14. An except from his article is as follows, “I’m elected by the Asian region I will tend to want to help them out where I can,” he told me. And he went on to say that because Shark fin Soup is the number one most prestigious thing to serve at a big event in China, Chinese people do not want it banned, and therefore he campaigns for that result."
