“Anti-Whaling Activist Paul Watson Marks a Year of Fleeing on the Sea”

July 17, 2013

motherboard.vice.com on July 16, 2013 released the following:

“By Ben Richmond

Just as Edward Snowden is caught in the in-between-nation zone of a Moscow airport, the anti-whaling activist Paul Watson is caught in a nation-free life at sea. Watson hasn’t been into a port since fleeing Germany in July last year in order to keep himself from being extradited to Japan.

Watson is the founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, which fights to preserve marine life most famously by directly disrupting whaling operations. The group’s aggressive actions have earned it attention from the public, via the Animal Planet show Whale Wars, and from governments, including those of the United States, Canada, and Japan, which calls them eco-terrorists.

Last known to be aboard the Sea Shepherd ship the MY Steve Irwin when it confronted Japanese ships in the Southern Ocean in February, Watson’s exact whereabouts are currently unknown. Still, for being a refugee, Watson maintains a fairly high media profile. He regularly gives interviews about Sea Shepard’s actions and also his own tenuous situation.

Legal trouble has been a defining trait for the man who describes himself as a “pirate of compassion.” The origins of his life-on-the-lam span continents and decades. In 2002, Watson and a Sea Shepherd ship was sailing through Guatemalan waters when they came across a Costa Rican vessel that was slicing fins off of sharks.

According to Peter Hammarstedt, a spokesman for Sea Shepherd, they called the authorities and took control of the fishing ship, only to have the Guatemalans show up with a gunboat to arrest Watson. The Sea Shepherd fled to Costa Rica, where Watson was charged with “violating navigational regulations.” The charges were dropped, and then reinstated.

Ten years later, Watson was detained at an airport in Frankfurt on behalf of Costa Rica. While being detained, it occurred to Watson that the Japanese—his longtime arch nemeses—might be behind the arrest, not Costa Rica. “We have created some very powerful enemies in the Japanese government,” Hammarstedt told The New York Times, and also said that Watson thought the Japanese were behind the arrest.

So when Watson was released on bail, he fled rather than risk extradition. “I decided I know if I go to Japan I’m not going to be released, ever. So I left Germany,” he told CTV. To review, Watson was arrested in Germany on charges by Costa Rica, for actions in Guatemalan waters, potentially as just a front for the Japanese.

A month after he took to the sea, Interpol issued a red notice at Costa Rica’s behalf. They issued another red notice a month later on behalf of Japan, on charges of breaking in and damaging a whaling ship in 2010. Whether or not he would extradited to Japan before, he almost definitely would now.

The international criminal co-operation system makes any port, save for the least savory, potentially dangerous, according to Robert Currie, a law professor at Dalhousie University in Halifax.

“He could very well be arrested in quite a large number of countries and the countries where he couldn’t get arrested are probably countries where he wouldn’t want to go,” Currie told CTV.

And so Watson wanders the high seas, transferring from ship to ship in international waters, unable to see his daughter and grandchildren in Seattle. Like Snowden, he is a man who cannot safely enter or leave a country. That must suck. But the open seas still sound better than being stuck in an airport.”

“INTERPOL targets escaped French gangster Redoine Faid with Red Notice”

April 18, 2013
Redoine Faid Red Notice

INTERPOL on April 15, 2013 released the following:

“World police body supporting international manhunt for convicted robber who blasted his way out of prison

LYON, France – An INTERPOL Red Notice or international wanted persons alert has been issued for one of France’s most notorious criminals, Redoine Faid, who escaped from a detention centre near Lille after setting off a series of explosions and taking four guards hostage.

The global alert was sent to all 190 member countries just hours after the breakout on Saturday and included identifying information such as the photograph and fingerprints of the convicted armed robber in order to assist national law enforcement to identify him.

In addition to his convictions for a series of armed robberies, 40-year-old Faid is suspected of involvement in a robbery in 2010 in which a policewoman was killed during a shootout and is also wanted in connection with the attempted murder of an officer of the Gendarmerie Nationale.

INTERPOL’s Fugitive Investigative Support (FIS) unit at its General Secretariat headquarters is now liaising closely with French authorities in order to ensure that any information on Faid’s whereabouts is shared as a high priority.

INTERPOL’s Executive Director of Police Services, Jean-Michel Louboutin said the decision by its National Central Bureau in Paris to make the Red Notice publicly available would significantly assist law enforcement in locating the escaped prisoner.

“Redoine Faid is clearly a dangerous individual and INTERPOL is providing all necessary support to ensure that he is back behind bars as quickly as possible,” said Mr Louboutin.

“INTERPOL’s Red Notice is a powerful law enforcement tool that can assist police in locating and apprehending individuals who pose a threat to public safety and security, which is clearly the case here. France’s request for INTERPOL to issue a Red Notice dramatically increases the likelihood of Faid’s arrest, no matter where he attempts to evade justice,” added Mr Louboutin.

Faid should be considered armed and dangerous and members of the public are advised not to approach him, and to pass any information to their local or national police.

A Red Notice can be requested by any INTERPOL member country and is issued by INTERPOL’s General Secretariat headquarters. It is placed in INTERPOL’s central database which can be queried by any member country, and can also be added to foreign law enforcement databases and border lookout systems.

Many INTERPOL member countries view a Red Notice as the basis for the provisional arrest of a wanted person with a view to their extradition. Issued in all four of INTERPOL’s official languages ‒ Arabic, English, French and Spanish ‒ a Red Notice remains in effect until the wanted fugitive is extradited.”

“Sea Shepherd plans early anti-whaling trip”

November 2, 2012

The Australian on November 2, 2012 released the following:

AAP

“MILITANT conservationist and Sea Shepherd founder Paul Watson will join this year’s campaign against Japanese whalers despite an Interpol notice for his arrest, the group says.

The Canadian national has not been seen since he skipped bail in Germany in July on charges stemming from a high-seas confrontation over shark finning in 2002, but he has pledged to lead the fight against the harpoonists.

The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is due to kick off its annual campaign against the whalers on Monday, with four ships and more than 100 international crew readying for the southern hemisphere summer pursuit.

“It is expected Captain Paul Watson would appear in command of one of the vessels when the action begins,” said Peter Hammarstedt, captain of the Sea Shepherd’s Bob Barker vessel, on Friday.

The environmentalists begin their campaign on Monday with the Steve Irwin, previously captained by Watson, leaving the southern Australian port of Williamstown skippered by Indian Siddharth Chakravarty.

The Bob Barker, currently in Sydney, is due to leave later in November, while Sea Shepherd has not revealed the location of its two other ships, new mystery vessel the Sam Simon and the Brigitte Bardot.

“The plan is for our fleet to meet the whaling fleet in the North Pacific off Japan,” Hammarstedt said in a statement.

“We are planning to take the battle pretty much up to Japan itself.

“We are keeping the location and identity of our new vessel, the Sam Simon, a secret with our hope that the first time the whalers see the Sam, is when she comes into view on the slipway of the factory processing ship, the Nisshin Maru, effectively shutting down their illegal whaling operations.”

The Japanese whalers usually set off around December, with Sea Shepherd ships departing Australia to harass them in the Southern Ocean soon after.

This year, the activists plan to steam north and head them off early.

“We are going to try and intercept them as quickly as possible, and try to make this the first year they get zero kills,” Sea Shepherd’s Australian director, Jeff Hansen, said.

Hansen said he did not know how Watson would join the fleet, saying information was only on a “need to know basis”.

But there is a quote from Watson, who claims the charges against him are part of a “politically motivated” attempt led by Japan to put an end to his efforts against whaling, included on the latest statement.

“We have never been stronger and the Japanese whalers have never been weaker, we need to take advantage of our strengths and their weaknesses and we need to bring this campaign home – to Japan,” Watson said.

Watson, who for years has harassed Japan’s whale hunt, was arrested in Germany in May for extradition to Costa Rica over the shark finning incident in 2002.

Commercial whaling is banned under an international treaty but Japan has since 1987 used a loophole to carry out “lethal research” in the name of science – a practice condemned by environmentalists and anti-whaling nations.”

INTERPOL Red Notice for Julian Assange remains in force

August 26, 2012

INTERPOL on August 16, 2012 released the following:

“LYON, France – INTERPOL confirms that its Red Notice, or international wanted persons alert, issued for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange at Sweden’s request in November 2010 remains valid.

Confirmation that Mr Assange’s Red Notice status remains in force follows Thursday’s decision by authorities in Ecuador to grant asylum to Mr Assange, two months after he took refuge in its London embassy while fighting extradition from the UK to Sweden where authorities want to question him in connection with alleged sexual offences.

A Red Notice status is a request for any country to identify or locate an individual with a view to their provisional arrest and extradition in accordance with the country’s national laws.

Many of INTERPOL’s member countries consider a Red Notice a valid request for provisional arrest, especially if they are linked to the requesting country via a bilateral extradition treaty. In cases where arrests are made based on a Red Notice, these are made by national police officials in INTERPOL member countries.

INTERPOL cannot compel any of its 190 member countries to arrest the subject of a Red Notice. Any individual wanted for arrest should be considered innocent until proven guilty.”

Interpol has issued a Red Notice seeking the arrest of Sea Shepherd leader Paul Watson

August 8, 2012

The Sydney Morning Herald on August 8, 2012 released the following:

By: Andrew Darby

“Interpol seeks arrest of Sea Shepherd leader

Global police agency Interpol has issued a Red Notice seeking the arrest of bail-skipping Sea Shepherd leader Paul Watson.

Interpol said the request to its member countries, which include Australia, was based on a warrant issued by Costa Rican authorities over navigation charges laid in 2002.

Mr Watson, 61, was detained in Germany for the Costa Rican case. He jumped bail on July 22 after learning Japan was seeking his extradition over the conflict between Sea Shepherd and the Japanese whaling fleet in the Antarctic.

Interpol, based in Lyon, France, has until now resisted requests for the Red Notice to be issued against the hardline conservationist.

“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 in compliance with Interpol’s Constitution and rules,” the agency said.

It said the Red Notice did not constitute an arrest warrant.

“Each of Interpol’s 190 member countries must apply their national laws and standards in determining whether it may detain or arrest the wanted person,” it said.

In the last message sent through Sea Shepherd a fortnight ago, Mr Watson indicated that he may have been at sea.

“I am presently in a place on this planet where I feel comfortable, a safe place far away from the scheming nations who have turned a blind eye to the exploitation of our oceans,” he said.

He said Sea Shepherd would proceed with plans to mount its ninth Antarctic campaign if Japan went south again this summer.”

Terror suspect set for extradition to Germany

June 14, 2012

standardmedia.co.ke on June 13, 2012 released the following:

“By Cyrus Ombati

A man suspected to have been behind the bombing of a building in Nairobi last month that claimed one life and injured more than 30 people will stand trial in Germany.

Top police officers in Nairobi said even though Emrah Erdogan alias Imraan Al Kurdy alias Salahaddin Al Kurdy was wanted in the country over terrorist attacks, they had no objection to his deportation to Germany.

“Although he was a member of Al Shabaab and was in Kenya illegally, Germany had issued a warrant of arrest for him through the International Police (Interpol) earlier,” said police.

He was arrested in Tanzania to where he fled after masterminding the detonation of what was later identified to be a deadly fertiliser bomb.

The bomb ripped off the roof of Assanands building along Moi Avenue in Nairobi’s Central Business District and destroyed business premises.

Police have been hunting for the suspect who was suspected either to have been hiding in the country or fled to Uganda.

Interpol had apparently issued a red notice to the regional states last Tuesday asking authorities to arrest Erdogan and have him deported to German to face terror related charges. A red notice is issued for arrest or provisional arrest of wanted persons with a view to extradition.

Burden in prosecution

“He could be deported to German anytime now. There was a red notice from the Interpol asking for his arrest and deportation to Germany,” said a senior officer who asked not to be named.

Interpol had asked for his and other terror suspects’ fingerprints and other personal details before they issued the notice, officials said.

The official added that Tanzanian authorities informed them at the weekend they had arrested Erdogan, who crossed there through the coastal region.

Other sources said Kenya did not want to try Erdogan because he would be a burden to them in prosecution and jailing. Anti-Terror Police Unit in Nairobi said they were waiting to be supplied with statements that were recorded from Erdogan.

“He has talked and recorded much on his being in the region and those he probably got in touch with but our colleagues are yet to give us the details,” said another officer.

Deputy police spokesman Charles Owino said a team of detectives had been dispatched to Tanzania to get more information regarding the arrest. “Erdogan is someone we have been looking for and we have sent our officers to Tanzania to be part of the ongoing investigation,” he said.

The suspect who is a German of Turkish origin is believed to have travelled to Waziristan in north-west Pakistan in early 2010 where he joined a militant Islamist group before going to Somalia last year, police said.”

INTERPOL commends international police cooperation resulting in swift arrest of suspected Canadian killer

June 5, 2012

INTERPOL on June 4, 2012 released the following:

“LYON, France ‒ The arrest in Germany of Luka Rocco Magnotta, a Canadian national suspected of murder and the subject of an INTERPOL Red Notice for internationally-wanted persons, highlights the essential role of international police cooperation and sharing intelligence in fugitive investigations, a senior INTERPOL official has said.

At the request of Canadian authorities, on 31 May INTERPOL issued a Red Notice for 29-year-old Magnotta, wanted for arrest in the killing of a man and posting his body parts to various locations around Canada. German authorities confirmed that Magnotta was taken into custody by police in Berlin today, Monday 4 June.

INTERPOL’S 24/7 Command and Coordination Centre circulated the Red Notice in all four of its official languages, Arabic, English, French and Spanish, to each of its 190 member countries after it was believed Magnotta, who is also known as Eric Clinton Newman or Vladimir Romanov, had fled Canada for France.

Thereafter, INTERPOL Canada and the relevant INTERPOL National Central Bureaus began sharing intelligence on Magnotta’s whereabouts. In light of the dangerous nature of the suspected murderer, all information on the case was treated as a priority by INTERPOL’s Fugitive Investigation Support unit and its Command and Coordination Centre at its General Secretariat headquarters in Lyon, France.

Throughout the case, INTERPOL’s General Secretariat headquarters remained in constant touch with the relevant National Central Bureaus worldwide and specialist fugitive investigation units to ensure a seamless flow of intelligence in following up potential leads provided by both law enforcement and the public.

“Magnotta’s arrest demonstrates the benefits of INTERPOL’s worldwide network of National Central Bureaus sharing information on dangerous fugitives believed to have fled abroad. Police know that the best way to catch fugitives anywhere in the world is to use INTERPOL’s tools and services,” said the Head of INTERPOL’s Fugitives unit, Stefano Carvelli.

“INTERPOL congratulates all of the authorities and its National Central Bureaus in Canada, France, Germany and elsewhere for their collaborative efforts which led to the rapid arrest of this wanted individual,” added Mr Carvelli.

INTERPOL Red Notices serve to communicate to police worldwide that a person is wanted by a member country and request that the suspect be placed under provisional arrest pending extradition.”

INTERPOL assistance leads to first extradition from Seychelles of suspected maritime pirate

May 26, 2012

INTERPOL on May 25, 2012 released the following:

“LYON, France – A Somali man suspected of maritime piracy has been extradited from the Seychelles to Belgium after a cross-check of his fingerprints against INTERPOL’s databases linked the suspect with the hijack of Belgian vessel MV Pompei in waters off the Seychelles in April 2009.

The Belgian judicial authorities had requested the suspect’s extradition based on forensic evidence establishing the presence of the individual during the hijacking of the ship on 18 April 2009 when its 10 crew members from Belgium, Croatia, the Netherlands and the Philippines were taken hostage by 12 pirates.

Immediately after the release of the hijacked vessel on 28 June 2011, Belgian Federal Police conducted an extensive forensic crime scene investigation of the vessel and its results were added to INTERPOL’s maritime piracy and fingerprints databases.

On 26 March 2011, following the arrest of six Somali nationals in territorial waters off the Seychelles, its police then provided INTERPOL with the fingerprints of the individuals to be cross checked with INTERPOL’s databases within the framework of INTERPOL’s Project EVEXI. The check revealed that the prints of one of the apprehended individuals matched latent marks seized on the hijacked Belgian vessel.

Project EVEXI aims to establish procedures for building the capacity of six East African countries (Kenya, Madagascar, Maldives, Oman, the Seychelles and Tanzania) in maritime piracy intelligence gathering and forensic evidence collection.

“This case marks a major success in the cross border fight against maritime piracy and represents a blueprint for international cooperation with INTERPOL in the fight against maritime piracy and its networks,” said the Head of INTERPOL’s Maritime Piracy Task Force, Pierre St. Hilaire.

“International police cooperation with INTERPOL can lead to major outcomes in the international fight against maritime piracy using cross continental information exchange.”

“We congratulate authorities in the Seychelles and Belgium since this extradition was only made possible by their actions and outstanding cooperation with INTERPOL,” added Mr St Hilaire.

Hassan M.O. now faces judicial prosecution in a Belgian court.”

Noise complaint leads to arrest of Serbian murder suspect

May 18, 2012

Wink News on May 18, 2012 released the following:

“NAPLES, Fla.- Naples Police responded to a noise complaint on Thursday that led to the arrest of a wanted Serbian murder suspect.

On Thursday, at approximately 4:02 a.m., Naples Police officers were dispatched to a loud music complaint at 450 Bayfront Place, #4808. The officers were directed by the complainant to the unit where they were able to hear yelling and loud music. They spoke to the owner of the unit and after issuing her a notice to appear and advising her to turn down the music the officer left the building.

Five minutes after the initial encounter, the officers were advised by dispatch that the original complainant called back to advise that the subjects had turned up the music right after the officers left. The officers returned to the unit at which time after knocking on the door, it was answered and slammed in their faces. The officers knocked again and the door was answered, where the officers observed seven people in the unit.

Officers advised Mozolicova to step outside, so officers could affect an arrest for disorderly conduct and City Ordinance Violation 22-37 Noise Violation. Mozolicova refused to step outside of the unit, at which point officers attempted to take physical custody of Mozolicova inside of the unit.

Other subjects present attempted to interfere with the officers attempts to take her into custody. Miric pulled away from officers, and physically began fighting and hitting officers. Mozolicova attempted to distract officers and tried to physically grab Miric to pull her back into the unit.

Officers were able to affect an arrest on Miric, and Officer Harp stood by with the subject outside of the unit in a hallway area. Others present were interfering with the lawful attempts of the officers trying to arrest the subjects.

At one point, Stepanovich charged towards an officer who was kneeling down actively engaging in handcuffing one of the subjects and kicked the officer in the face. Stepanovich attempted to charge the officer again at which time the officer was able to deploy his Taser and stop the aggressive actions.

After all subjects were taken into custody, a routine wants and warrants check revealed that subject Stepanovich had an active INTERPOL warrant / wanted persons hit out of Serbia for the crime of Murder. INTERPOL warrant # KI46708. INTERPOL later advised they were going to begin to confirm the warrant and extradite with the requesting country.”

Despite Interpol notice, Turkey says it won’t extradite Iraq’s Sunni vice president

May 9, 2012

Washington Post on May 9, 2012 released the following:

“By Associated Press

ISTANBUL — Turkey said Wednesday that it has no plans to send Iraq’s vice president, who is currently in Turkey, back to Iraq for prosecution even after Interpol placed him on its most-wanted list.

Iraq has charged Tariq al-Hashemi with terrorism, accusing him of guiding and financing death squads that targeted government officials, security forces and Shiite pilgrims. Al-Hashemi, a Sunni, says the charges are false and motivated by the political enmity of the Shiite-led leadership in Baghdad.

Turkey’s deputy prime minister, Bekir Bozdag, said al-Hashemi is in Turkey for medical treatment and that Turkey had no plans to extradite him.

“I am not sure whether there will be a new evaluation in the period ahead,” Bozdag said. “But as the government, our position in this is very clear. We would not extradite someone to whom we’ve given support.”

The minister also noted that Turkey had not had enough cooperation from Iraq in its efforts to detain supporters of the Kurdish rebel group PKK, which carries out attacks inside Turkey from bases in northern Iraq.

Interpol said on its website that it has issued a so-called “red notice” for al-Hashemi, responding to a request from Baghdad. A red notice by Interpol seeks the arrest of a wanted person with a view to eventual extradition. The subjects of red notices are considered to be on the organization’s most-wanted list.

Interpol Secretary General Ronald K. Noble said the red notice for al-Hashemi “will significantly restrict his ability to travel and cross international borders.””
