  1. Don’t understand why Costa Rica would want Paul arrested. I thought Costa Rica is a pro-environment country.

    • My first thoughts were that it was a trumped-up charge paid for by someone who does not want him on the high seas.

  5. Paul Watson is a wonderful man and has done so much for whales, seals and dolphins – I wonder if the Canadian government can block this extradition? Even Interpol isn’t interested:

    All 190 member countries making it clear that it would not publish a Red Notice seeking the arrest of Paul Franklin Watson because its Office of Legal Affairs was not satisfied that the request was in compliance with INTERPOL’s Constitution and Rules.
