  1. UPDATE, July 4, 2013
    Japanese officials say objections to its scientific whaling program are based on moral arguments, not legal ones. Australia cannot win this case, Japanese officials say, because the international treaty allows for scientific whaling and it allows member countries to determine for themselves what qualifies as science.

    This legal position is explained in a story written by Andrew Darby published in yesterday’s Sydney Morning Herald.

    A later story by Darby, published in today’s Herald, reports on the surprising testimony by a witness called by the Japanese government. The witness, a Norwegian expert named Lars Walloe, described several problems he had with the Japanese research, but he confirmed that it was research.

  2. I do not see the ‘danming’ testimony as Mr. Darby tries to sway his readers in his articles. Japan’s witness had problems going through the data, not that their program should be halted. This one shows even more weaknesses in Australia’s case, they are going after the ‘feel good’ side of it http://www.smh.com.au/environment/whale-watch/sharp-rebuke-for-japan-as-dreyfus-appears-in-whaling-case-20130710-2pp7p.html
    Trying to stay neutral on it and reading his articles, their doesn’t look to be hard evidence against Japan’s program. And to say that one of the founding memebers only wanted, but never put to law, a limit of 10, is only hearsay
