Nelspruit - A man who allegedly supplied firearms to rhino poachers in the Kruger National Park (KNP) appeared in the Nelspruit Magistrate's Court earlier this week, Beeld reported on Friday.

Petros Fernando Boene appeared in court on Wednesday, the same day that 11 other alleged rhino poachers appeared at the Musina Magistrate's Court.

He allegedly supplied Mozambican nationals with firearms to poach rhinos in the KNP.

Boene was also allegedly involved in smuggling the rhino horn to Mozambique where it was then sold to Vietnamese and Chinese nationals, who shipped it to the East.

Meanwhile, in Limpopo, a Chinese national and a Mozambican man appeared in the Phalaborwa Magistrate's Court for the illegal possession of rhino horn.

Their bail application was postponed to Monday.
