国際法を軽視する日本の北太平洋「調査」捕鯨

絶滅危惧種を保護する責任を負う国連機関の元事務局長が北太平洋における日本の捕鯨計画を「国際法違反」として非難しました。

日本政府は今日、今週初めに日本の沿岸海域で127頭のミンククジラの捕殺を許可したことに加えて、北西太平洋で絶滅危惧種のイワシクジラ134頭とミンククジラ43頭の捕獲枠を独自に割り当てた許可書を発行しました。絶滅のおそれのある野生動植物の種の国際取引に関する条約(CITES、通称ワシントン条約)の元事務局長で現在はミュンヘン大学で国際環境法を教えるピーター・サンドは、日本が公海でイワシクジラを捕獲することはCITESの条約違反であり、国際捕鯨委員会(IWC)の勧告を公然と無視していると言います。
