Please free Captain Paul Watson. The Costa Rican extradition request is absurd considering they were killing sharks illegally and Watson was stopping them according to law. To honor such an absurdity would be like jailing a police officer for stopping a bank robber!
I was very concerned to hear that Germany has
detained Sea Shepherd's Captain Paul Watson for possible
extradition to Costa Rica. I understand that the warrant for
Captain Watson's arrest is politically motivated and possibly
due to an incident in which Sea Shepherd uncovered an illegal
shark finning operation.
I support Sea Shepherd's efforts to monitor and publicise illegal fishing and whaling around the world and recognize that some illegal fishing operations try to use international law to shut down the Sea Shepherd operations. I urge you to consider the valuable work Captain Watson and Sea Shepherd are undertaking globally to highlight the dangers to our oceans in considering this extradition request.
Free Paul Watson! Germany can show the world that illegal poaching and destruction of the environment by greedy commercial interest groups will not be tolerated.
Various items related to the campaign at hand appear below. Please inform yourselves and others about the matter.
In shocking news, German officials have decided to proceed
with the extradition of Captain Watson to Costa Rica. Our last
hope of saving Captain Watson from extradition is to convince
German officials at the Ministry of Justice and Ministry of
Foreign Affairs to step in and overturn their decision. Show
your support for Captain Watson by contacting Sabine
Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger, the Federal Minister of Justice in
Berlin, Germany. Let her know that the warrant for Captain
Watson's arrest is politically motivated and thus should be
ignored by the German government. With international support we
can set Captain Watson free, and keep him from the possibility
of facing an unfair trial in Costa Rica ...

I guess it is some sort of badge of courage that world
governments and populations take an interest in you, but one
would hope they do so for similar reasons. This is not the case
in Frankfurt, Germany at the moment.
While people around the world revere Captain Paul Watson for the stands he takes to save whales, as featured on the popular Animal Planet series Whale Wars, the German government has him under arrest for a 2005 complaint for the very actions millions cheer for each week. I hear the arresting officers were fans of the series, which was recently released there ...

Sea Shepherd expected news on the fate of Captain Paul
Watson to be announced yesterday by the German Higher Regional
Court in Frankfurt but as hours passed on, no word was received
from the general public prosecutor until close of business
hours. At 1800 hrs, the general public prosecutor finally
submitted his motion for a preliminary extradition arrest
warrant against Captain Paul Watson. The late filing of this
motion, coupled with a German bank holiday today, has given
Captain Paul Watson’s supporters and allies until this Friday
to appeal to German Federal Minister of Justice Sabine
Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger and Minister of Foreign Affairs Dr.
Guido Westerwelle’s standards for International Human Rights

Higher Regional Court Defers Judgment to Ministry of
In an extraordinary move by the German Higher Regional Court in Frankfurt, the court has granted the general public prosecutor’s request for Captain Paul Watson’s preliminary arrest for extradition to Costa Rica. However, the court has also granted bail for Captain Paul Watson during the time the court considers whatever documentation Costa Rica is able to provide to substantiate their bogus allegations against Captain Paul Watson. It is expected that Captain Paul Watson will be freed on bail on Monday, May 21, 2012. Sea Shepherd’s legal team says this is an unusual, but promising move on the part of the Higher Regional Court and is further indication that the international campaigning efforts for Captain Paul Watson’s release are being heard in the chambers of justice in Germany ...
