    Interpol has issued an international Red Notice for fugitive Paul Watson, , after he skipped bail in Germany awaiting Extradition to Costa Rica .

    Watson, a Canadian, often called an eco-pirate, was arrested in May in Frankfurt on a warrant from Costa Rica, where he is wanted on charges stemming from a high-seas confrontation over shark finning in Guatemala waters in 2002.

    Posted on Interpol’s web site, the statement reads “Following confirmation from German authorities that Paul Watson had failed to satisfy the bail conditions established by the German courts and had fled the country, Costa Rican authorities renewed their request… to issue a Red Notice seeking his detention or arrest with a view to extradition”

    Continuing, “Based on Mr Watson’s failure to satisfy the bail conditions set by the German court, and the additional information provided by Costa Rica concerning the underlying charges, it was concluded that a Red Notice could be issued,” it said.

    Mr Watson was detained in Germany then released on bail after paying 250,000 euros ($292,000) skipped bail on July 22 and fled the country.

    The Sea Shepard organization responded to Interpol’s notice saying it is part of an effort by Costa Rica on Japan’s behalf.

    The group described Costa Rica’s charges as “bogus” which stem from the use of a water cannon against shark-finners.

    Paul Watson said Japan was conspiring with Germany and Costa Rica.
