Norfolk, Va. – Please see the next assertion from PETA Senior Vice President of Laboratory Investigations Kathy Guillermo concerning the subpoena that PETA simply acquired from the attorneys representing Cambodian authorities official Masphal Kry, who will go on trial subsequent week for his position in an alleged monkey-laundering ring that equipped primates to U.S. laboratories:

PETA was shocked to obtain a subpoena from Masphal Kry’s attorneys, demanding our communications and paperwork associated to the intensive work that we proceed to do to show the merciless, violent, and lethal worldwide commerce in monkeys to be used in experimentation. We had no position within the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s five-year investigation or the U.S. Division of Justice’s prosecution. We’re watching this trial carefully, as we imagine it’ll expose the soiled underbelly of a monkey-trafficking scheme that has meant distress and dying for tens of hundreds of monkeys, however we don’t have what Kry’s attorneys are on the lookout for.

PETA—whose motto reads, partly, that “animals aren’t ours to experiment on”—factors out that Each Animal Is Somebody and affords free Empathy Kits for individuals who want a lesson in kindness. For extra info, please go to or observe the group on X, Fb, or Instagram.
