Warrant Out for Captain Paul Watson’s Arrest

The Japan Coast Guard has obtained an arrest warrant for Captain Paul Watson, who is the founder and president of the Sea Shepard Conservation Society.

The warrant was issued regarding the organisation’s interference with Japan’s annual whale hunts in the Southern Ocean.

Watson said “the Japan Coast Guard has no legal authority to issue warrants and they are not enforceable even in Japan.”

Watson isn’t concerned about the Japan Coast Guard executing the arrest warrant in the high seas saying that “they send security boats every year, but there’s no way they could board us. We have six foot spikes surrounding the whole ship, we have LRADs, lasers, pepper spray.”
