What is the highest possible level of punishment from OSCO?

In relation to financial crimes, which are often committed in combination with wildlife crimes, a sentence of up to 10 years can be handed down. Importantly, OSCO now enables the appropriate authorities to apply a greater number of powers in their investigations as well as seizing the proceeds of the crime. These are vital to deterring organised criminals, as they have been motivated by the relatively low risk and high financial rewards of trafficking wildlife.
