Aussie Court Says Japanese Whalers Breaking Law

An Australian Court said that Japanese whalers are breaking the law by killing whales in an Australian Whale sanctuary. This should make things interesting.

The Federal Court has ruled that the Japanese whaling fleet is breaking Australian law, and has issued an injunction to stop its activities.

The court says it is satisfied that the Japanese whaling fleet, controlled by Japanese company Kyodo Senpaku Kaisha, has contravened numerous sections of the Environment Protection Act by killing and injuring Antarctic minke and fin whales in the Australian whale sanctuary.

It has ordered that it be restrained from continuing whaling.


The fight is on!
