Madagasgar to Thailand: TRAFFIC - Wildlife Trade News - Largest seizure of Critically Endangered Ploughshare Tortoises

I wonder where the criminals are now and if tortoises have received any further protection.
March 2013 article: 
TRAFFIC - Wildlife Trade News - Largest seizure of Critically Endangered Ploughshare Tortoises made in Thailand
Dr Chris R. Shepherd, Deputy Director of TRAFFIC in Southeast Asia said, “The criminals behind this shipment of Ploughshare Tortoises have effectively stolen over 10% of the estimated population in the wild. They should not be allowed to get away with it. They should face the full force of the law.” “We urge authorities to go after the criminal masterminds behind these shipments and break the trade chains that threaten these incredibly rare animals.”
