Two weeks ago it was Indonesia, this week it is Jordan.....and of course both times it was the independent auditors of ESCAS, animal advocacy/activist groups that made the reports - PETA in Indonesia, Animals Australia in Jordan.
The export company involved in Jordan (LSS), one of the major Australian sheep exporters, have had other non-compliances but never any penalties of course. And as for the Dept.....well apparently it took them nearly a week to notify LSS, so clearly they are all over the situation and deeply care about animal welfare also.
And so on it goes - repeated incidents in all parts of the globe , mostly reported by animal activist/advocates with complaints upheld by Dept.....but never any penalties. No surprise really....there werent even any meaningful penalties to exporters after the Awassi Express affair.....so who knows what it would take?
