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 (see below links) that Mr. Watson fled Germany in defiance of a German court and 250,000 euros bail paid by his minions around the world. This whole situation is somewhat suspect. Although Watson’s past activities have been labeled stupid by many, it is difficult to believe he would be this stupid as to jump bail from Germany.
Thinking is perhaps this is a stunt for the showman to get publicity. Publicity is the blood in his veins and the lining of their bank account.
If Watson did jump bail and ran the safest place for him right now would be Tokyo. The Japanese would be delighted to house him in a Japanese jail, thus helping him avoid what he fears most, a jail in Costa Rica.
