CHASA ON POSSIBLE UK BAN ON IMPORT OF HUNTING TROPHIES
Stephen Palos (CHASA CEO) closes his plea to the UK government for common sense in UK concerning this matter, with the following words: "Your decision must, of course, be in the best interests of the United Kingdom. But as much as you are a nation of islands, you do not function as an island. In fact, your actions are profound by world standards. Your trophy imports are rather small in number, but the United Kingdom remains for good reason a significant symbolic voice for reason, fairness and virtue on the global stage. British resolve is, and always has been based, on showing restraint and putting calm logic ahead of emotion. If you are only to apply emotion to this particular subject then the game is over, and with it much game will disappear from the plains of South Africa. If, however, you take some time to unravel the truth and complexities of the subject, you may find logic dictates a very different outcome."
