Paul Watson fugitive, an analysis
Paul Watson jumps bail from Germany,
W. I. W. = Where is Watson?
“W. W.” = Wanted Watson.
Sea Shepherd’s Paul Watson has been in Germany since May 13, 2012 awaiting the disposition of an extradition request filed by Costa Rican authorities. During this review period Mr. Watson was ordered by a German court not to leave Germany pending the outcome.
It has been reported that Mr. Watson has jumped bail and German authorities have issued an arrest warrant for him. Meaning the 250,000 bail (303,288 USD, 23,729,745 JPY) paid by his organization has been lost.
Mr. Watson claimed while he was in jail and under house arrest in Germany, if he is extradited to Costa Rica, it would in effect be a death sentence. He claims a so-called “shark fin mafia” in Costa Rica placed a contract / bounty on his head. However with this fear he still waited in Germany for the outcome even though he feared for his life if extradited to Costa Rica.
Then he found out Japan was seeking to extradite him, and that is when he fled, jumped bail and left Germany. Huh? Does that mean Paul Watson feared a Japanese jail more than he feared a jail in Costa Rica? He feared for his life if extradited to Costa Rica. There was no threat to his life in Japan, yet he feared Japan more than Costa Rica. Something is missing here.
