The "Groenewald Gang," including Dawie and nine others were arrested in 2010 on a variety of similar charges to that of the U.S. While Dawie himself remains free, he has 1500 charges against him, and has killed more than 15 rhinos. The case has been repeatedly postponed, with the current date being set for August 2015.
The South African authorities have given "substantial cooperation" to the U.S. investigation. As far as the extradition request, the government commented that "such assistance will be provided." It is unclear when this will happen.
American hunters involvement
The hunters who paid between $3,500 and $15,000 for the illegal rhino hunts, are not being brought up on charges. They were cooperative with authorities on their involvement with the safari outfitter, and essentially were misled. They believed there were appropriate hunting permits in place, and that the rhinos were "problematic" animals.
