Focus shifts to Japan’s North Pacific whale killing ground
(03-31 19:38)

Clare Perry of the Environmental Investigation Agency said the ruling by the International Court of Justice today ordering a temporary halt to Japanese whaling “lays to rest, once and for all, the grim travesty of Tokyo's so-called 'scientific' whaling.''
“Next, the world needs to focus its attention on Japan's whaling in the North Pacific, where it continues to issue permits to kill up to 500 whales annually in hunts using the same ‘scientific' clause that has now been condemned beyond dispute by the international court.''—AFP
