    Interpol issues arrest notice for Sea Shepherd founder

    Interpol issues arrest notice for Sea Shepherd founder
    8/08/2012

    Interpol said Wednesday it had issued an international Red Notice for the arrest of Paul Watson, the founder of marine conservation group Sea Shepherd, after he failed to meet bail conditions in Germany.



    Interpol said Wednesday it had issued an international Red Notice for the arrest of Paul Watson, pictured in May, the founder of marine conservation group Sea Shepherd, after he failed to meet bail conditions in Germany

    Watson was arrested in May in Frankfurt on a warrant from Costa Rica, where he is wanted on charges stemming from a high-seas confrontation over shark finning in 2002.

    "Following confirmation from German authorities that Paul Watson had failed to satisfy the bail conditions established by the German courts and had fled the country, Costa Rican authorities renewed their request... to issue a Red Notice seeking his detention or arrest with a view to extradition," Interpol said in a statement.

    "Based on Mr Watson's failure to satisfy the bail conditions set by the German court, and the additional information provided by Costa Rica concerning the underlying charges, it was concluded that a Red Notice could be issued," he said.

    Lyon-based Interpol does not have the power to issue international arrest warrants but can request member countries make arrests based on foreign warrants.

    Watson was detained in Germany for a week in May before being released on bail after paying 250,000 euros ($310,000) and being ordered to appear before police twice a day. But he skipped bail on July 22 and fled the country.

    Watson, a 61-year-old Canadian known to his supporters as "The Captain", is a veteran campaigner whose Sea Shepherd organisation is known for its muscular attacks on Japanese whalers

    As much as I agree with his motives the man himself is an egotistical wanker of the highest degree and a danger to his crew and anyone one the sea in the vicinity of his vessel. I for one would love to see this tosser thrown in jail. maybe that would wipe the permanent smirk from his ugly face ?
    Treat everyone as a complete and utter idiot and you can only ever be pleasantly surprised !

    I agree, good cause but he unecessarily pressures young 'uns into dangerous acts he would never take on himself, laying guilt on them if they refuse.

    Fuckin' weasel in my book.
