JAPAN ORDERED TO IMMEDIATELY STOP WHALING !!!!!
From Whales Alive – 21 June 2013
The case against Japan’s whaling program being heard at the International court of Justice (ICJ) begins at The Hague on Wednesday June 26th.
“Japan will be severely embarrassed by being dragged to this international court” says Mick McIntyre, Executive Director of Australian based whale conservation group Whales Alive. McIntyre will be attending the court case as an observer.
The case against Japan has been brought by the Australian Government who will argue that Japan’s whaling program in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary breaches international law .
“We all know that Japan’s so called scientific whaling program is a sham and finally we have the law on our side” says McIntyre.
“We expect the judges of the ICJ to agree with the Australian Government that Japan’s whaling contravenes international law.”
“This case against Japan is a once in a generation opportunity to stop this barbaric whaling, which is outdated, inherently cruel and for products that nobody needs.”
