    The International Police and Interpol issued a red alert for the arrest and capture of Paul Watson, from the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

    The application was made by the Japanese authorities. Watson is wanted in that country on charges of “breaking into a boat, damage to property, obstruction of business and injuries.” The case relates to a series of incidents that would have presented in the Antarctic Ocean in February 2010.

    The red alert against Paul Watson and has been sent to the 190 member countries of Interpol, as of September 14, 2012. This alert is conjunction with the “Costa Rica’s request for Aug. 7, related facts and different offenses.”, says Interpol official site.

    Watson, a Canadian, was arrested at Frankfurt airport on May13th and released a week later after paying a bail of 250,000 euros ($ 307,772). The Canadian had to report daily to the police station in Frankfurt. However, last July 23 escaped from Germany.

    Costa Rica’s Foreign Ministry confirmed that it had delivered the extradition request against environmentalist Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany, which moved it to the State Attorney and the Superior Court.

    Watson’s Costa Rica charges are for the alleged violation of ships traffic in Costa Rica, while filming a documentary called ‘Sharkwater’ in 2002,”. The specific incident of “violation of ships traffic” took place in Guatemalan waters, when Sea Shepherd encountered an illegal shark-finning operation run by a Costa Rican ship called the Varadero.
