Sea Shepherd, the fugitive captain - WANTED
The Japanese Coast Guard issued an arrest warrant for Sea Shepherd's Captain Paul Watson (according to an article in the magazine The New Yorker, he is not a credentialed sea captain).
The Japanese will file this arrest warrant with INTERPOL (International Police Agency). The filing will be a "blue notice," meaning authorities are not be requested to apprehend and extradite Watson, but just to report on his whereabouts and activities. As oppose to a "red notice," which would have caused an arrest by member nations.
Peter Bethune who is currently in Japanese custody for his illegal boarding of a Japanese whaling vessel apparently has pointed the finger at Watson. "Peter the Lip" singing like a canary is reported to have admitted to throwing acid onto the Japanese decks, but claimed under the direction of Watson. Thus the issuance of the arrest warrant.
Watson is reportedly in the City of New York. It has been reported he is demanding to know from the Australian government if faces arrest if he returns to Down-under, Australia (Waltzing Matilda).
