Sea Shepherd enriches the whalers with $2.55 million

Sea Shepherd enriches the whalers with 
$2.55 million

Sea Shepherd agreed to pay the Institute of Cetacean Research – ICR $2.55 million.  The ICR is the umbrella group over the Japanese whaling activity.  They sued Sea Shepherd claiming the cult group violated a December, 2012 injunction order by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in the USA.  The
injunction ordered Sea Shepherd not to sail within 500 yards of the Japanese whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean.

Subsequently Sea Shepherd USA transferred their sea-going assets to Sea Shepherd Australia in an attempt to circumvent the Court’s injunction.  The subterfuge did not deter the Ninth Circuit Court from ruling that is exactly what Sea Shepherd did and was about to award the ICR around $5 million in compensation. 

The floating circus is claiming the payoff to the whalers is not money from sucker donations.  But the money comes from litigation money awarded to them.   Huh?  Just what litigation has resulted in a monetary advantage to the cult group?

Another pending law suit against Sea Shepherd is one brought by Ady Gil for around $4.5 million.  What happens if Mr. Gil is awarded a judgement will Sea Shepherd have the funds? 

Please donate to Sea Shepherd to keep the cult afloat and able to pay the possible damage award to Ady Gil.

Yahoo News headline “Sea Shepherd to Pay Millions to Whale Killers.”   Do you think there is perhaps a little news bias in Yahoo News?  “Whale Killers” or “Whalers?”
