Whale activist on the run vows to continue work
Associated Press
A+ A-

BERLIN: The founder of environmental group Sea Shepherd says he plans to continue disrupting Japan's whaling fleets despite being on the run from authorities in at least three countries.

Paul Watson was arrested in Germany in May on a Costa Rican extradition request. He skipped bail earlier this month after learning Japan, too, was seeking his extradition from Germany.

The 61-year-old Canadian issued a statement Tuesday saying he was now in "a safe place far away from the scheming nations who have turned a blind eye to the exploitation of our oceans."

Watson says he expects Japanese whalers to "continue to exploit all avenues to find a way to stop me."

He vows to set sail in December for the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary around Antarctica to intercept Japanese whaling ships.
