ADDITIONAL DATA

The following e-mail arrived at NAUTICAL LOG.  It is supposed to be in reference to Paul Watson but we have no confirmation of that.  It is published in a fair and balanced approach to giving all sides of a story.  Following are partial quotes;

"Via Paul Watson:  Yes I have arrived back home.  I legally entered the United States on Monday morning in San Pedro Harbor in California.  Interpol has dropped the RED Notice from Costa Rica and I will defend my position with regard to Japan if required............ "

It was also stated that the Interpol RED Notice from Costa Rica had expired due possibly to a statute of limitations on the original charges.  Note that NAUTICAL LOG would need that to be confirmed by Interpol which has not been done.

In another item the Executive Administrator of SSCS was questioned regarding a vessel named DECURION which was berthed in South Africa.  It was considered by the ICR attorney to be a "hidey hole for the fugitive Paul Watson" and ICR wanted to know if SSCS was going to spent monies to upgrade the DECURION to acceptable International Maritime standards.  No clear answer was really given to the inquiry.

In passing NAUTICAL LOG found more than one vessel named DECURION however none seemed to fit usage by SSCS.  Anyone with information ?

Good Watch
