    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – After being included again on Interpol’s red list of Interpol, the Canadian conservationist Paul Watson asked the president, Luis Guillermo Solís , to drop the charges against him.

    Watson has been wanted by Costa Rican courts since 2002 for crimes such as “danger of shipwreck and air disaster” against the Costa Rican boat, Varadero 1. Apparently, the boat suffered a mechanical failure and was sucked into Guatemalan waters.

    “I would ask respectfully for the withdrawal of the extradition request on the founder of Sea Shepherd and Greenpeace co-founder, Captain Paul Watson … I would also ask that the Government work with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society to protect turtles in Moin and the Caribbean coast and on Cocos Island or the waters of the Pacific nation,” Watson wrote on his Facebook page.

    According to the Canadian, his interests also lie in working with the government on behalf of activist Jairo Mora, who was killed last year.

    “A year ago, a brave man died protecting turtles at Moin Beach. Sea Shepherd wants to honor this man who was working with the government of Costa Rica, to protect marine biodiversity from illegal exploitation by people who are looting the future of all Costa Ricans,” declared Watson.

    “I think that President Solis has great potential to make a significant and positive difference in the protection of marine biodiversity in Costa Rican waters,” Watson concluded.
